Inverted e (or how to dominate the globe)

I miss the old web. I liked the odd pages filled with strange things straight out of a person's imagination. I miss when the internet looked more like route 66, with weird side-show sites. Now it's pretty much all I-20. With huge billboard-like advertisements blocking the view.

What's happening to the internet is similar to what happens to music. And, in truth, it probably happens after every innovation in artistic expression. Everybody explores the new medium. Corporations commission web pages. It's perfectly natural, I suppose. The INFORMATION SUPER HIGHWAY has reverted back to something resembling it's moniker. If you really try, though, you can still find the back roads.

Which brings me to my point... IS THE SCHWA BACK???
