On today's episode of Scatterbrained, we're dialing up onto the 2000s Internet. Why did it make that weird beeping sound? You're about to find out! Our first short story examines a prominent case of file-sharing that originated with a Kazaa account. Then we look at the methodology of a scientific study all about getting emotional support from instant messaging. Our second short story takes us to Neopia with the history of Neopets, which surprisingly involved Scientologists. And we finish up with a fact list covering everything from Charlie the Unicorn to Xanga.
