Trine Gallegos hosts this segment shot in 1995 when the Internet was first becoming an icon. This is an interesting look back at how clunky the applications were. I don't even think they were using a computer mouse yet.

FTP, Telnet, WAIS, Gopher, Archie, Mosaic, and all the rest were fun and fine.

But to me, it all really began (and will probably end) with The Whole Earth Lectronic Link (aka The WELL). Kiss



Still clunky by design, IMO it's the absolute triumph of content over form. And one of the few things that predated (and later transitioned over to) the web that's still worth keeping. Maybe one of the few things worth keeping on the web regardless.

I haven't been back in years, had all but forgotten about that beautiful little corner of the web. . .

I'm still there.

In a sea of faux communities, shifting fads, and pointless change for the sake of change, that small island of conviviality and colloquy remains unspoiled by all that has since come to pass on the Internet.



It's still as beautiful. And best of all, you can always come back. smiley
