the internet was even better in the 90s. Websites were informative text and photos, where anyone could make them. It wasn't all corporate and ad-based. AOL had celebrities chat in their online board, and they would publish the schedule in the newspaper when they'd appear. There used to be an unlimited number of chatrooms about any subject, and you'd spend hours just texting about anything, and it wasn't full of hate or divisive politics or anything.
and everything about the internet felt brand new.
I imagine mobile technology (apps) is kind of like that. It's probably really fresh to teenagers, like how the "internet" was with me, but it's way too visual and omnipresent now compared to the "internet" of the 90s and very early 2000s...before facebook ever existed.
