What was the web like in early 2000's?
>>
The letters XXX were everywhere.
>>
People were a lot nicer. Maybe not 100% NICE, but they were more respectful.
>>
No kids shitting up every site and forum.
>>
It was a collection of small isolated communities.
There was no one single social network.
People still knew what netiquitte means.
People still used Altavista and Yahoo.
The Internet was still a tool, rather than a thing in itself.
Linux was shit, people in the industry mostly used FreeBSD.
3D graphics acceleration was still a novelty.

Thats because we were the kids shitting up every site and forum.

It's heavily romanticized, but it was completely different back then tb.h

You can't go back so all it will do is make you incompatible with everyone else. Internet nostalgia is the new wave of being old people.

/g/ is soooo old tech luddite horny it's hilarious. Make a 5 year increments "WILD WEST BEST YEAR" containment boards.

it was better as a whole before smartphones and social networking though, admit it

>>51475621
replace smartphones and social networking with "web 3.0"

replace web 3.0 with "kids with modems"

replace kids with modems with "non teletype interfaces"

this meme has been going since the late 80s and happens to be cancer.

while looking for some porn as a 10 year old saw a fucking CP ad on a polish milf website with some guy sticking his dick in a little toddler, things were disturbing back then

probably the biggest change from the 2000's. Everything was slow. You could read take the time to read a book while you downloaded a 20s porn clip over the next 30mins. Today everything is now or sooner. I want new stuff now. I need more content now. I need more uplikes, more selfies, more pats on the back from my echo chamber. I need I want I will get it all NOW. 2000's internet was a video poker machine at the bar, today's internet is somewhere between mecca and the las vegas strip.

2006-7 was the beginning of the end.

I'm not sure when I lost track of what was happening. Somewhere around 2013.
