The web is filled with big trucks

Ted Stevens has gotten just a little flack about his “series of tubes” comments, in which he argued the “the Internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a big truck. It’s a series of tubes.”

Duh. We all know that the internet is not a big truck. The web is a big truck. In case we needed a reminder, here is the International Herald Tribune in 1995:

“If the Internet is the information superhighway, the Web is the equivalent of the trucks that carry the mail.”

No wonder Senator Stevens was confused.
