He Can't Be Serious

For some reason, this story is getting much less attention than stories about newspapers complaining about internet competition. But it is even more misguided.

The head of Sony Pictures Entertainment, Michael Lynton, recently told a panel that, "I’m a guy who doesn't see anything good having come from the Internet. Period."

He went on to complain about the on-demand nature of the internet, the ability of people to access information any time of the day, as well as the fact that much of the information is free.

Not one good thing from the internet? Not email? Not travel planning? Not political organizing? Not sharing pictures with family miles away?

He probably didn't like the invention of telephones, either
