One of the things that felt exciting about the internet (before Facebook and a twitter president) was the fact that it felt like a place people were trying things out, like a classroom or a sandbox.  People making things in the internet felt free to try things because it wasn’t real life.  The term IRL ( In Real Life )makes the internet feel safe to try things our, make social networks  and collect user data.

One of the worst days to go on the Internet is April 1st. Large Fortune 500 companies make off beat practical jokes. It’s the one time that trust is truly broken. Maybe that is a good reminder that anyone can create anything in the Internet.
