Networked Farm Animal Finds Profound Quote!

Here at the BrainFarm we are all for innovation, and are constantly sharpening the cutting edge of technology. We are the exclusive owners of the world's only NetCows, and we have a whole herd. Pioneered by us, NetCows are just like normal cows, but much smarter.

They were bred to have highly evolved minds, and their central nervous system can be wirelessly connected to the Internet. As long as they are happy bovines, the bandwidth is kept high. In fact, their networked brains are hosting this website right now! Our herd just got back from exhibiting at the Cow Parade, and they're just settling into things again.

By day they simply count the flow of traffic to our website (you can see them at the bottom of this page), but by night their electronic minds go online, and trawl the Web for cool stuff. This morning NetCow02 found a quote relevant to the work we are doing in the 'Media and Communication' NeuralField, and sent me an email:

"Television: A medium. So called because it is neither rare nor well done"
Ernie Kovacs 1919 - 1962, an American comedian.

So then, it seems our investment in the NetCow breeding programme is finally paying off (we were getting worried). Expect more quotes, pictures, links, and other fun stuff from the web-trawling NetCows in the coming weeks. In the meantime though, why not post some of the quotes that you have found on the subject of media in the comments box, or answer this week's query from the QuestionBarn?
