Even though I’m a geek and internet is my work and pass time, I’m still old fashioned. I prefer paper books over ebooks, I like old books like “Pride and Prejudice”. I go more often to the second hands bookshop then I go to an Apple store. Needless to say I read my fair amounts of books regularly.
When I read The Dante Club: A Novel by Matthew Pearl I learned all about Dante’s Divine Comedy while the characters tried to solve gruesome murders in 19th century Boston. And as a true geek after finishing the book I went online to read and learn about Dante.
The most important thing you should know is that The Divine Comedy is a three part poem, Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. Each part is a book on itself in which Dante tells about his passage through them all.
Now if you spent any amount of time online you have your fair share of things that annoy you. Now all those are categorized according to Dante’s Internet.
The vestibule contains people who have annoyed all of us, they don’t read anything opting instead to ask right away. They make the saying “there are no stupid questions” a moot statement. And the 5th circle people should not even be on the internet. They will look for things they don’t like and complain about it.
Dante even went outside internet and granted people who talk at the theater a place in special hell. I will add also people who invade your personal space.
Dante’s Internet is one of the coolest thing I’ve come across recently, combining my love for literature with internet. Someone should make a poster of it.
