It made online identity start mattering to highschool students. It made their social lives follow them home every day, and once smartphones were added ontop of all that, well, then it follows them everywhere.

So out comes a generation of kids obsessed with curating their own identity, and boy oh boy, doesn't that just totally dovetail with the 'everyone's special, everyone's a winner' mentality of the 90's that they were subjected to in their childhoods?

Now everyone is a myopic little narcissist who cares about looking cool on the internet, and since they're glued to their phones 24/7, they never, ever stop thinking about this shit. So 'cyberbullying' becomes a real thing to these morons, because none of them can remember how to function without social media in their life. They all need their precious feeling protected, they don't want to see or hear anything they disagree with, lest they be 'offended'.

That's how we got to the fucking mess we're in now.

That's in addition to it being available to the mainstream at all. It's true that AOL made the internet more accessible, but you still needed an expensive computer, a second phone line (or sacrificing it while online) and someone in your family to understand computers.
tl;dr: Niche thing gets popular, loses its identity.
At least comic books, video games, and imageboards are safe!

Chanology ruined 4chan that year and I stopped using 4chan. Only came back to 4chan recently.

>tfw the average 4chan poster was barely out of diapers in 2007

For me though that was the year that I stopped trying to be a normie, lost all direction and ambition, last girl I dated, dropped out of college, etc.

Although all that shit was triggered (hate to use that word) by the even bigger shit that happened in 2006.

it was the year after most of us discovered youtube

if you were born in 1994 or 1995 it was the year you were allowed to register a (legal) account for runescape, vbulletin forums, irc, 'roblox' club penguin with free chat, myspace, etc

facebook still allowed you to put arbitrary html on your profile back then

digg was the reddit of that age, reddit was funnyjunk

your 'tech-savvy' mom and dad or serious older sibling might have used metafilter and been part of the community

people thought UMPCs were the future

your dad probably used a palm treo, LifeDrive, Palm T|X or was part of the HP PDA camp. people knew these devices were cool but nobody knew what the heck to do with them

4chan was still doing crazy IRL stunts back then

people still didn't really understand what the internet was for, and it was still super easy to wind up on or come across insane websites

geocities websites were not uncommon

the internet had mystery. it was still an elite club known to few

people are more cynical now

This got me thinking the other day, there is a sort of transitional phase on the 6th year of the decade then in the 7th year the changes become evident and a lot of new things become popular, this carries on till the 1st year of the next decade where everything reaches a peak then everything starts to decline.

I'm predicting a lot of changes this year, a lot of things will change and this will become more evident next year when we start to look back at it.

Got myself a tulpa that year. Records show that first successful autonomous interaction was purely auditory and happened on 14.06.2007. The road to continuous and good visual hallucinations was long, first documented success being 18.11.2008. Soon followed a successful tactile hallucination on 19.11.2008. None were induced, but autonomous, initiated by her.

Man.

I got heavily involved in child porn, then graduated high school, tried to work in construction, had a heat stroke, turned 18, started smoking, discovered anime, discovered 4chan, decided to stop using CP but failed (as I would continually try and fail until around 2011), totaled my car, helped my only two friends pack their shit for college, got beaten up by a nigger right outside my house, lost will to leave my room, then, most embarrassing at all, started crying at Christmas diner when an uncle asked where I was working when I said I didn't go to college.

I've found my composition skills decaying in recent years. I rely on too many of the same phrases over and over and let weasel words infest everything I write.

It happens in daily life too. I've vowed to stop calling everything "stupid" and come up with better ways to express myself, but it's challenging.

Nigga what? 2007 was when people's parents and teenage siblings started getting facebook profiles. It was the year after "you :^)" were Time's person of the year. The internet was mostly one big commercial by 2007.

You're describing maybe 2002. 2005 at the latest.
