Web 2.0 Means More Yelling Apparently

Speaking of web sites that yell

Finding myself interested in news about the shutting down of Alaska’s Pipeline due to massive corrosion, I clicked through to Forbes.com to read more about it.

Within a few seconds, Steve Forbes himself was espousing, in what I can only assume was real-time video transfer, the value of something. I don’t know what he was espousing since I turned off the speakers on my laptop faster than a metaphor trying to hide behind a simile.

Is there a Steve Forbes blocker? Firefox was able to block the pop-up, but not so much with the Steve-up.

There’s a lesson to the web advertisers of the world: A word is worth a coin; silence is worth two.
