Nobody Remembers Before

The internet, as we know it today, has been around for over 30 years.  The world wide web made it possible, and AOL really popularized it.  All those CDs in the mailbox guaranteed it.

Sure, the way we view it has changed.  Smartphones put it in our hands.  Video streaming became more feasible as connection speeds improved.  The resolution has improved greatly.  Pretty much anything you want to know is seconds away.

That means there are middle-aged people who can't remember a time before the internet.  That, to me, is weird.  Even weirder than AOL CD drink coasters.
