alternative news – ads by Google

There’s something interesting about Parallel Youniversity. I just love that tag line: alternative news – government conspiracies – rave culture. But they really should add “ads by Google” to the end of it.

It kind of sums up everything that I didn’t like about the whole early 90’s thing: the attempt to marry counterculture with making a fast buck. It was at the heart of Wired, because, of course, Wired was nothing more than a continuation of hippy by other means.

    How can you have truly alternative news and then tie yourself into a service provided by a large corporation? You don’t see that that’s at least… ironic?
