Welcome to Today On The Net.

Sometimes a website is born out of boredom. Sometimes it is born out of fandom or random. Someone may want to speak their mind, or give others a place to do the same.

This one? Honestly it was a mix of the three ‘-dom’s.

The Idea tm for this grew out of time spent working as a switchboard operator. Between calls at that job there would be a lot of downtime and for the first time since I started working a job with internet access it wasn’t on the forbidden activities list. At first I was just calling over my shoulder for my coworkers to come check out this things I just found, then moved to sending out a daily email to a growing list of coworkers. Eventually I ended up switching to emailing myself links and then throwing them online on Facebook and doing Stumble Upon reviews. It was a really easy system to use, but it ended up my overwhelming my friend’s feeds… and it wasn’t really able to be organized how I would have liked.

And thus, this site came to be.

 
I think that Major Spoilers has things right in regards to how images are used and I am shamelessly cribbing their policy on it. Major Spoilers, if that is a problem, let me know and it will be dealt with.
