Not at all. Technology articles were still predicting doom and gloom bandwidth clogging meltdowns. Plus if you remember you would click a video and have to deal with terrible pixilation with buffering.

In 2002 I predicted Reed Hastings would reveal himself to be the messiah and usher in a new era of peace and prosperity for the Earth.

Not in my wildest dreams. I would have thought the companies offering internet service would have completely choked the life out of it, not that they haven't tried.

As a side note to this story; I'm glad to see the EFF getting the money. It's a great organization.
