That is a very large self-righteous gif providing misleading common sense you have there.

Yowsai! Didn't expect to get THAT kind of cold shoulder. Okay, let's push a disclaimer then:

I, in no way endorses or supports any movement for or against any law or popular movement, as long as they do not trouble my daily routine. I am mostly focusing on the astounding effect the Internet has had on our lives since we began geeking on... whatever it was we geeked on back then (Starcraft, for me).

I'll leave the political biais to those that kind of thing interests. I'll head straight back to lolcats and the Beta, thank you very much.

I wasn't harping on the bias. I just found some of the claims funny. For example, I'm pretty sure the amount of information on the internet is strictly finite.

Come ON, I already said a gazillion times - NOBODY exagerates on the Internet!

The amount of information on the internet at any given time is finite, but it is open in such a way that any and all information could be put onto the internet at any time; it may not contain all possible information simultaneously, but the possible information it could contain is unlimited by its nature.

IOW, I don't think it was meant literally, particularly given that it references access to information rather than storage of information itself.

I disagree. The amount of information available on the internet is infinite if and only if the available storage is infinite, which it isn't (and never will be). In addition, the number of bytes sent over the internet is inherently finite - discrete and countable. So no matter how you look at it, you can't feasibly argue that we have access to an infinite amount of information.

Note also their wording is specifically "access to an infinite amount of information." So they were definitely using "infinite" to modify "amount" rather than "access."

Well it doesn't specify "on" or "through" the internet, so I'd say it's open to interpretation.
