As someone who had dial-up service and direct dial BBSes in the 80s - 90s and was around to see the birth of the WWW I have to laugh at kids who think they were the first.

Seriously. Are they fucking retarded? Dont they remember the internet always being a thing in their stupid insignificant lives? Fuck Facebook! Myspace and Friendster came before it.

This is what unbridled narcissism looks like. ME ME ME LOOK HOW UNIQUE AND IMPORTANT I AM.

I completed the warcraft 1 campaign and was a pretty decent wc2 multiplayer on 56k dialup despite being a young child - where is my self fellating infographic? Oh, I don't get one because its irrelevant and nobody gives a shit.

I notice neither wikipedia or any of it's less SJW branches are on that list. These little shits are too busy circle jerking to read up on the history of anything much less listen to those with more experience.

Define "retarded". Most people are much less intellectually effective than they'd like to believe, myself included.

Ahh yes, back in the day when you'd yell at your sister for picking up the GODDAMN PHONE WHILE YOU WERE USING THE INTERNET. I remember those days.

Or you'd leave the internet connected to download some sweet mp3's only to find out your sister was trying to call home (from a pay phone) to get a ride back from her soccer game...

We were a Prodigy household, but we had hundreds of AOL disks back when they came once a week in the mail, in the back of every computer magazine, hell I think even the grocery stores had a stack of them as you were leaving. You could not get away from the AOL coasters back then.

Remember when the internet was that Wild Wild West instead of a Montessori School?

Idk, I remember back in the mid 90's playing on yahoo or some other chat and talking mad shit to people, old-school trolling, AOL basically sent the whole exchange I got reported for in text form and threatened to end the service due to the amount and degree of shit I was typing............. None of it was technically illegal either, just trolling.

Think I was in some "lesbian chat" explaining to those bitches they weren't actually lesbian, they just didn't know it yet, but I was there to help them.... Something along those lines only far more graphic and provocative, with a dialog going on between a few "lesbians" & myself, they weren't happy.

The "Wild Wild West" was there, mostly on the 1st gen Dark Web in places like Warez... Damn access to that shit really fucked me up. So... Certain companies like AOL was always PC/Thought Policing dicks.
