What Happened to Web 1.0?
A great post by Andrew Havis:
I have been using the Internet now for a long time. I first remember logging onto the web for the first time in school around 1996-1997, so I have been online now for over fourteen years.
Anyone who used the Internet in the mid-nineties will know that the web was a vastly different place back then to what it is now. Facebook didn’t exist. Twitter didn’t exist. In fact, not even Google, MySpace or Friends Reunited existed. People searched the web using Yahoo!, AltaVista or Lycos, and social networking was limited to e-mail, chat rooms, Usenet or ICQ.
So what’s happened to some of the popular Web 1.0 destinations?
