Re-Imagining The Modern Social Web for 1997

The website Once Upon imagines a simpler time; a slower, more civilized age best viewed in Netscape Navigator 4.3 on a CRT monitor at 8 kB/s. In short, it imagines how current pillars of the Intnernet — Google+, Facebook, and YouTube — would look and function if they were made in 1997. The brainchild of Olia Lialina and  Dragan Espenschied, the site brings back the square dialog boxes and tables you hoped you’d never see again. It even claims to run at super-slow dialup speeds. The experience is so real, you can practically hear the modem screech.
