a blast from the past

While reading some EE articles, I happened across a link to a Webring site. Remember Webrings? Probably not. They were the rage back in the 90′s. Not so popular anymore, as all content gets swallowed up into the Facebook/Tumblr/Google ecosystems.

The nostalgia hit of clicking through the various pages in the ring was quite impressive. All of those pages “made with notepad”. The blink tags, marquees and counters, all used without irony. Ahh, those were the days.

For the curious, start here.
