This Web is Your Web

This Web is Your Web
by Shelly Blake-Plock

with apologies to Woody Guthrie
sing to the tune of This Land is Your Land


Chorus:
This Web is your Web, this Web is my Web
From the semantic to The Atlantic
Chicago Tribune to Tehran dorm room
This Web was made for you and me.

As I was surfing along the highspeed
I saw before me the streaming HD
I saw before me my MMOG
This Web was made for you and me.

Chorus

I’ve hacked and searched her and I’ve followed my Tweet feed
Through the sparkling falls of her Twittered RTs
And all around me a Skype was sounding
This Web was made for you and me.

Chorus

RSS digest as I was scrolling
Higlighted Diigo and Flickr photo
Facebook was downtime, Ustream a goldmine
This Web was made for you and me.

Chorus

As I was surfing, I saw a block there
And that block said: no authorization
But with a proxy, I was scot-free
Now that site was made for you and me!

Chorus

In the halls of high schools, in the shadow of the filter
Near the principal’s office, I see my teachers
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this Web’s still made for you and me.

This Web is your Web, this Web is my Web
From the semantic to The Atlantic
Chicago Tribune to Tehran dorm room
This Web was made for you and me.
