>>37894271>Is it me or the internet felt like an entirely different place before 2007?
it's not just you - not at all... try to remember a time before Wikipedia, Myspace, Youtube, and all this navel-gazing social media bullshit
plus, the limitations on bandwidth - so downloading a picture was, in itself, a commitment
I remember downloading the Phantom Menace trailer the second it was released - and having to wait almost seven hours... no streaming video - straight download as mov. file... the download was interrupted and I had to start from scratch - at least three times
and 1998/1999 wasn't even that long ago, in the big picture --- back then, Napster was pretty huge... Geocities was just about the only thing that even remotely resembled Myspace
