Came across this Gem on DashBurst this last weekend...
Do you remember what it was like to search stuff online back in the 80s? Of course you don't because the Internet we know and love didn't exist yet, but what if it did? How wacky would Wikipedia look like back then?

I've had a monstrous love affair since I linked my first hyper link on HyperCard and made my screen shout out "ping" about 4 million years ago… When I first made that link link to something outside, across the room or the continent, I was locked in this wedlock for what will most likely be the rest of my life. So what if it's all just a sometimes justs fanciful variations on tired old theme; if this is merely an updated and more polished version of that? It's been update after all. The plain fact It's being polished at all, day in and day out by bright minded people with brains full of great ideas and an eye to making it better (and work).
There's so much good work that's been done and so much more left to do; radical changes unexpected advances as it all becomes more used and more useful. There are 5,000 ways to skin each of theses cats and I think it's become obvious …there are just so many cats left to be skinned (on Facebook alone). I have no advantage in all this other than knowing that this once wasn't there… Well and perhaps witnessing to the proof of these improvements allows me more confidence in the knowledge that it can and will always be better.
Good work people.
