I'm pretty sure the only time I've ever encountered the word "superhighway" is in the phrase "the information superhighway".

That got me thinking, what if we'd picked a different transportation metaphor?

The information freeway?

The information interstate?

No, I've got it: the information turnpike!

@nosolls @codesections I'm still trying to back out of my information driveway.

@codesections If ISPs start throttling different websites, then "information turnpike" really will be an apt metaphor

@codesections I guess it's the "information superhighway" because it's like if ALL the information highways merged into one grand highway!
