Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton Says That No Good Has Come From the Internet

Prove Sony CEO Wrong: What Good Came From the Internet?

In the most surprising thing I've ever heard a leader in technology say, Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton remarked that "I'm a guy who doesn't see anything good having come from the Internet."

Now I know that working in tech doesn't mean you automatically love the Internet, it just seems like such a shortsighted thing to say. I realize that Lynton's concern was in the illegal distribution of movies on the Internet, but there is way too much to be said for the Internet's role in disseminating knowledge and info about movies that benefits the film industry.

But anyway — let's address Lynton's quote and geek out together: I can think of many, many good things that have come from the Internet. Off the top of my head, there's email, the "cloud," Craigslist, my job, not to mention the concept for the greatest show on earth. Tell me what your favorite thing is that came from the Internet!
