“A tremendous amount of Google’s economic platform derives from the porn industry.”

“What we know about the Internet today is because of porn,” panelist Patchen Barss and author of The Erotic Engine told The Huffington Post.

“Without streaming video, Youtube wouldn’t look like what it does today; CNN.com wouldn’t look like what it does today. Without ecommerce, there’d be no Ebay, no Amazon.com.

“A tremendous amount of Google’s economic platform derives from the porn industry. All of the facets, even social networking, at least intellectually, started with the early use of chatrooms that were dominated by the porn industry. Everything we know about the modern Internet is something that has strong roots in pornography.” — AdultFYI

    This is stupid. I just did a search for “jenna porn” and not one advertisement came back from Google.com.

    If anything, porn has been lagging their usual spot of technology innovation. In the days of the VCR, the porn industry was completely on top of it. A big reason why those things took off was so that people could watch porn at home.

    These days, where the hell are porn sites that let me view porn easily on my TV? I’ve got a Playstation and a Windows Media Center PC hooked up to it. But, to watch porn from a web site on it, I’d have to move the couch closer to the TV so I could see what the links I’m clicking on say. All the interfaces to these porn sites are written for desktops, where you’re a lot closer and it’s a lot easier to see what the words are.

    Hell, there are very few sites even optimized for the iPad…

    @frog404 – You can subscribe to a porn channel for your TV (Comcast or Dish Network pay per view). Or you can buy a DVD. It doesn’t take a genius to figure that out.

    Who gives a sh** if VCR porn was a big hit? The Internet revolutionizes porn and introduced online porn. That’s a pretty big deal.

    Somebody, you’re as clueless as the porn industry. Even when I had satellite TV, their were only five channels. That’s entirely antithetical to what the internet is. Since your apparently no genius, let me explain. The brilliance of the internet is that anybody can publish anything at any time. TV was limited by the business model of several networks that decided what people get to watch. But, the internet demolishes that limitation. Now the limits are only defined by what people are willing to produce. It has nothing to do with what giant corporations decide people can watch.

    And now that I have Comcast, there actually are zero adult channels and zero porn titles available on demand. That may just be in my area, I don’t know.

    But, the example I used was web sites easily navigated on your television. That’s going to be the only way to take advantage of the possibilities of the internet. Unless you think it’s realistic all the no-name gonzo shops are supposed to call up Comcast and make some deal to get their movies shown…

    The Internet revolutionizes porn and introduced online porn. That’s a pretty big deal.

    The internet revolutionized porn, not the other way around. But, the story Darrah posted is bragging about porn’s influence on the internet, which is nonsense… Did you even bother to read it or did you just start running your mouth?
