We Were Actually Doing Amazing Things Before We Knew About the Internet

Before Twitter and Tumblr and Instagram and of course, Facebook, we made to call people to see what they were eating or drinking or dating or working on. We couldn’t just scan through our “feeds” and know every detail about someone’s life. We didn’t have the World Wide Wed, but we were still doing amazing things!

I pretty much grew up with the Internet. AOL being my first adventure, then moving onto AIM and Kazaa and all that good stuff, but part of me still longs for the days before Google Maps and Buzzfeed–before the Internet solved every debate and every case of boredom. We made mixtapes and called people houses to see if they wanted to hang out. We handed out real invitations to parties. We used road maps to find our way. We talked a lot more.

Don’t get me wrong, I am totally appreciate of all the Internet has to offer. It’s an absolutely amazing thing, and I still don’t even get how it works. I’m just happy that it does. Though sometimes, I do still yearn for the simpler times before all of this nonsense that the Internet has caused.

Thanks to Buzzfeed, we get a huge reminder of how wonderful life was pre-Internet and that, yes, technology is amazing, but we were already doing pretty cool things before it.
