The Internet of Yesterday and Today [Infographic]

Way back when, in the days when MUDs sucked away everyone’s time before graphical MMOs did, and an iconic email sound byte let us all know when we had mail, the Internet was inundated with infrequently updated family websites and school projects about favorite basketball teams. It was a different beast than it is today. The days of animated .gifs of blinking rainbow line separators letting readers know when a new paragraph began is, for the most part, behind us, and the Internet today, though much more terrifying overall, is much cleaner, prettier, and more useful. Online Schools wanted to remind us of the Dark Times, so they made an infographic reminding us to be thankful for what we have.
