A look at the internet…from 20 years ago

It’s sometimes bizarre to look back and try to remember what your life was like before social media, iphones and the internet. If I really press my brain hard enough I remember a time when the internet was viewed as a “pie-in-the-sky” and just started to pick up some momentum.

According to this CBC news piece, all you needed was a computer and a phone and suddenly you were apart of a new mesh of people, programs, archives and ideas. Here you can search and talk about art, music, sex, guitar construction, conservative politics and grief.

At least they realized back then that the internet was going to be a vehicle for sex and guitar construction.
