“Getting randomly booted off America Online in the middle of trying to use the internet. I also think people tend to gloss over or forget how shitty the early days of the internet were. I mean hell, we didn’t have YouTube before 2006. You wanna watch a music video from 1989 in 1995? Tough shit. Equally, I can remember when Wikipedia got popular (2005-2006) and just being amazed that you could look up academic quality articles on all kinds of subjects for free. That didn’t exist in the 90s. Website discovery back then was weird too. We didn’t have quite the abundance of search engines and algorithms, so you generally had to know the URL of the site you were looking for. Advertisements and commercials often showed the full web address of whatever they were promoting.” — Music_City_Madman
