Things Gone and Things Still Here

Don't Look Back

Looking at these links (first mention of MS-DOS, first mention of CD's, first mention of AIDS, first announcement of the World Wide Web) gives me a weird, creepy, Lot's wife feeling. I wonder if the people my age who were involved with usenet in the eighties feel the same. I didn't really enter the computer lab twenty years ago but I secretly thought those pocket-protected boys were kinda cute.

20 Year Usenet Timeline.

PS Memory is a funny thing. I could have sworn the 1984 ad was from the Summer Olympics, not the Super Bowl, but here is positive proof I am wrong about that.
