The is like a virtual city. Each website is a building. Sometimes you see suburban homes, and at other times, offices and storefronts.

Offices => company sites
Storefronts => online stores
Houses => personal sites

Compare the web with your hometown.

Where are the mom-and-pop shops? How come every other site is just an advertisement or billboard? And, most importantly, why don't most people have a house?

Static hosting is pretty much free. Why do most web-inhabitants just consume (youtube, twitter, etc.)?

@binyamin Most people rent a flat? Because they don't want to build and maintain their own house?


@sanchez That's fair. It's still a disproportionate amount though, due to the technical barriers.
