So much for free DSL.

So much for free DSL. Winfire has gone out of business. There are only a handful of free ISPs left now. I knew that many of the free web offerings were too good to be true, but I never expected such a wholesale collapse. The Internet will survive of course. And I think it will be better if the fumes of rampant commercialism burn off. I do wonder what it's going to look like when the fires stop, though.
