Clickbait in my inbox this morning:

“It all started when a few of us found ourselves missing the raw and exploratory spirit of The Early Internet and began to wonder things like: Is this misplaced nostalgia? What was _actually_ so special about that time?”
What was actually so special about that time was not having a monumentally pervasive business invading our privacy, safety, government, and you know–undermining the whole internet.
Nice try, Facebook. The innocent optimism act doesn’t work anymore.
