The Mainstreaming of the Internet
In an Online Spin article by David Smith, he discusses what amounts to the mainstreaming of the Internet. He counters the naysayers who spoke of the new economy as a fluke. He is right when he claims they had it all wrong. The Internet and all that it is, has become mainstream. There is no need for specific and separate coverage of the Internet as a medium. It is an integral part of life, business, and marketing. It is not a separate entity any longer.
The "new economy" didn't fail, it just became part of the whole economy.
