I miss the old internet, where we were hungry for information, had almost full privacy but acted as decent - if not more - as normal life because we had a "reputation". We had funny emails and had the same nickname to all the different forums, boards so we woud recognize our cyber friends! We used to sign a complete stranger's guestbook with kind and caring words! The amazing mostly open source sofware for browsing, emailing, chatting, gaming... Those were the days! Before big tech, consumurism, greed and laziness took over.
Enough reminiscing, I am trying to bring it back, slowly.
