Truly living in the Age of the Internet

At the Golden Globes last night, the always spectacular Tina Fey (yes, I have a crush) called out internet forum commenters as part of her acceptance speech.

While this speech was (of course) fantastic, and the bit about the internet was classic, it makes me wonder: how can those of us who want to keep a positive internet overall can influence the experience to tone down some of the negativity that flies around with great abandon?

Certainly I don’t have the negative view of the internet culture overall that people like Andrew Keen have, but still.

Anyone have any great ideas?
