here’s an example of the interweb making us more stupid.

Missing Auckland autistic boy found

Police have found a 10-year-old autistic boy, who disappeared this afternoon.

Police said the boy had been found and was safe and well.

who is the boy? why was he lost? how long did they look for him? was it just a false alarm?

nothing. just a statement, a report, and wasted bytes.

but somewhere there’s a milksop with a tear in his eye saying, “glad the little guy made it…”
