I remember the 90s, and what the internet (more accurately, the www) used to be like back then, with the frames and tables and animated GIFs and personal sites... That time, when geeks were saying buzzwords like "cyberspace", "information superhighway", "multimedia", "virtual reality", "hypertext", "chatroom", "homepage", "shareware", etc.
The spread of personal computers and the internet induced a (retrospectively exaggerated) sense of techno-optimism (see i.e. extropianism), which all but evaporated today. I miss that.
