Logging on uphill through the snow, both ways

Posted on July 26th, 2010

How best to describe late 20th-century Internet to those too young to remember? Imagine, if you can, a world where you're not constantly connected. E-mail didn't just pop up on your cell phone you had to go home and pick it up like paper mail. Assuming you even had e-mail. In '96, 81% of people didn't. Possibly because it was common knowledge that the Internet was for pathetic loners. Downloading a 10MB file meant walking away from the computer for an hour and praying nobody picked up the kitchen phone. And every single time you logged on, you'd hear the awful SQUEEEEEYAHHHH-fzzssst!!! of R2D2's death rattle.

That's how long I've been waiting for this:
