Why does it suddenly feel like 1999 on the internet? | MIT Technology Review - 0 views

  •  
    "It's like turning the clock back to a more earnest time on the web, when the novelty of having a voice or being able to connect with anyone still filled us with a sense of boundless opportunity and optimism. It harkens back to the late 1990s and early 2000s-before social media, before smartphones-when going online was still a valuable use of time to seek community."
