A bit like those “If Cavemen had machineguns” comics

this is an interesting thought:

"In the absence of weblogs and flickr tags and the whole electronic buzz that surrounds major events in the modern age, the Dome quietly foundered in a swamp of bad publicity, with no grass roots campaign or web presence to speak of, no online previews by insiders, no weblog accounts of family days out, no flickr pools of the shows or pavilions. We reckon the Festival of Britain has a stronger online presence than the Millennium Experience, which is danger of slipping into digital oblivion. Just as 'you're nobody in America unless you're on television', its absence from the web has effectively wiped the Dome from the collective memory."

I never went to the Dome… I had to stay at work or was traveling when the office visited
