"The term World Wide Web still sounds quite romantic to me. It fills me with nostalgia for the idea that connecting with the rest of the world was this exciting thing.
A similar feeling to looking up at airplanes and wondering where they’re going."

"Downloading (illegal) songs, but the title/artist/album would all be wrong. It lead to quite a few situations where I loved a song but had no idea what it was really called because someone messed up the file name."

"“Everyone who likes Michael Jackson press Alt+F4 now!”
1. Michael Jackson was alive and well at the time
2. This was done in chat rooms on AOL and other places, where you could see a list of all the users currently in the group.
3. Alt+F4 is the Windows shortcut to close the currently active window.
So it was a fun way to watch a bunch of people suddenly drop off the list because they unknowingly exited the room."

"In the nascent stages of the internet you would commonly hear “Get off the internet, I need the phone.”
The dial up modem on the computer connected through the phone line meaning you couldn’t use both simultaneously."
