~bartender A carajillo on the rocks, please!
Well, I guess we enjoy that feeling of the Internet/Web from 2000s due to the good memories and moments. Sadly, we are different people, and the internet is different too. These spaces have been fresh air to me. The smol net, the slow net, the hobbyist net, have been for me a different way to enjoy technology in general, besides working on Web 2.0-3.0ish, AR, VR, and multiple stuff bringing money to my family.
And it's weird since I've been reading books from 1800s, 1920, 1980, and even if wasn't alive at that time the feeling is like if I was that teenager living in those years. Aaaand, I can do that thanks to a transmission system, digital storage, and an eink reader.
Today, telecommunications in general, TCP/IP, 5G, microSD, GPS, to say something, are magical stuff that most people don't understand, and take for granted. For us, it's the top of the human inventive, greediness, ambitions, and talent.
The first time I watched the Web in action was, perhaps 1993 or 1994, and a colleague of my grandpa showed me a page about Michael Jordan.
Then dial-up came to my city, so you could actually play with it for about 20 dollars a month, not that much.
I had great memories of the following page (in spanish):http://ciencianet.com
And today that I checked again, looks much like in the 2000s, great!
