23. The sheer number of political wonks on this site has always

made DU ahead of the curve in the knowings of political news. It has always surprised me when suddenly something we knew about and discussed and opined over in months or years past is on the media as if itís breaking news. It has a bit of a jarring effect.

Other sites in other categories of interest are probably the same way. I imagine if there are medical interest sites filled with people who are intensely interested in such things the same would happen. The new things we would hear about the latest in medicine would be last yearís facts to them.

Iím old enough to still get blown away by what the internet is and does. Itís the most amazing revolutionary change to be going through! It really is the stuff of science fiction come true.
