Explaining TV To A Kid

20 years from now:

Every seven minutes the websites would take a break and tell you about shampoo fro 90 seconds. You had no say in what was available: some guy in an office in New York made the schedule. And it cost twice as much as the Internet.” – Morgan Housel, columnist at the Motley Fool and the Wall Street Journal

We bet the kid’s response will be: “What’s the Internet?” Or “What’s a website?”
