2000: The Internet year in review

Author: JT Smith

Highlights from the article: "The Internet reaches a demographic milestone as a new study reveals that for the
first time, the majority of U.S. Internet users are FBI agents posing as teenage girls,"
and "Online advertising network DoubleClick, under fire from the New York state attorney general for its plan to
personally identify Web surfers and their habits through its software, denies it ever implemented the scheme and
offers to make amends by paying for online subscriptions to "any of the numerous porn sites" the attorney general
frequents daily between 11:35 a.m. and 2 p.m. from his Dell XPS D300 office computer running Windows 98 and
Netscape Communicator 4.6."
Sure, every news Web site in the world does some sort of "Year in Review" feature in December or January, but only SatireWire's version of this tradition is full of items (like the samples above) that'll make you laugh so hard you'll need to wipe your monitor after you read them
