Dip in UFO sightings caused by the Internet?

How inaccurate can one article on UFOs be? Take 10 seconds to enter 'UFO sightings' into a search engine and get over 1 million returns. UFO reports have never been so common. This year alone there have been hundreds, some from very credible sources. The proof on the Internet completely contradicts the key 'point' of the article:

My friend Kevin Fitzpatrick, who spends a great deal of time thinking about these things, says there is a simple answer. He suggests an exact parallel between the rise in the use of the internet and the fall in UFO sightings. Logical: the amount of time spent staring at the sky must be in inverse proportion to the amount of time available to stare at a computer screen.

Storm Worm Rising

The Storm Worm is a huge botnet that may have commandeered up to 2 million PCs around the world.

Then the creators use yours and the other computers on the network to launch spam or denial-of-service (DDos) attacks.

As sci-fi writer Sterling himself says,

The Storm worm is an amazing piece of work. Anyone who has taken the time to reverse engineer Storm will tell you that it is a very sophisticated piece of software and it is highly unlikely that it was created just to send spam.
