What is your criteria for choosing?
About Greg Rutter's Definitive List of The 99 Things You Should Have Experienced On The Internet Unless You're a Loser or Old or Something
It's hard to say actually. I took everything I knew from the Internet and tried to compile it. In essence I tried to choose what I would show to someone how has never been on the Internet. The kind of people who have been living in a cave for years and suddenly turn to me and go "hey you know a lot about the Internet, what should I check out?" It's all things that have been around for years and years and years that if you've had connection to the Internet you've probably seen. I tried very hard not to have simply things that I liked or enjoyed, but instead things that were really obvious. Of course, that bias of things I liked really shaped what I've seen over the years in the first place. So yeah, short answer is that there really are no criteria for choosing.
How did this project come about?
My friend Jason challenged me to start thinking about it after talking with someone who had no idea what Chocolate Rain is. He was so blown away by it that he wanted to try building a list of everything this guy should have seen.
I don't agree with one of your choices, how do I provide feedback?
send me an email. I'll actually consider it and get back to you. But it's my list so I have final say.
One of the links doesn't work, can you fix it?
sure, just send me an email and let me know which one is broken. I'll fix it as soon as I can.
Who are you?
I'm Greg. I live in New York. I am a writer in advertising. I have an official website. I also have a blog which hundreds of thousands of people read every second (maybe more). Oh and I have a Twitter page for some reason.
