Cranky and speeding towards the big 4-0 as we step along through the 2020s, I think most people our age that were hardcore geeks in their teens really miss those early days of the internet in some way or another. If they don’t, they missed out! Something about them were just different. Like, different in a way that’s undeniably inferior, but with a simple charm. Communities were more scattered and smaller, the world was a more anonymous place, and the marvel of this insane new technology entered our lives at the perfect budding curious age.
The early internet was a great outlet for our creative nerdy energies and in some ways shaped who we are today. Listen in to hear some nerdy stories from times long past (…last century dude!)
You might end up thanking your maker that you now live in an era where you can play AR games on a smartphone with your friends in different countries in real time instead of begging your parents not to make phone calls during your IRC gaming meetups.
