There’s an interesting way to think about how the internet was born and died in 2017.
Nickelodeo and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment were still in the nascent stages of their digital revolution, and the show-runners of the network’s animated programming were still trying to get their shows out to the streaming services and other platforms.
It’s hard to imagine that the internet would be the only place where the same things could be seen and heard without a massive overhaul.
But in 2017, there was a time when people were watching shows on Netflix and other streaming services without knowing they were on the Nickelotones.
The internet was still very young, and it was a bit of a wild frontier at that point.
But as digital technology continued to evolve, and as new platforms began to take advantage of that, the internet’s future began to look a lot more promising.
Netflix’s original series were just getting started.
There were some great early successes, like the Arrested Development animated series and the Gilmore Girls animated series.
There was also plenty of work to be done, including a few shows that Netflix could’ve really benefited from.
But that was a small price to pay for a little more innovation.
In 2018, we’re looking back at the early days of the internet.
What happened in the first half of the 20th century and the first few years of the 21st?
For the most part, the technology that we have today was pretty simple at the time.
It consisted of a radio transmitter, a transistor radio, and a radio receiver.
If you’re interested in the history of the modern internet, you might be interested in my book The History of the Internet: The Origins and Evolution of the World Wide Web.
I wrote it to tell the story of how the Internet changed and developed in the year 1900.
And I wrote the book in order to tell how technology could change and evolve, but also to tell stories about people and technology that existed in the past and the future.
I also wrote the guide for how I learned about the internet in the early years of its existence, so that you could find the stories that are worth remembering.
What happened after that?
The internet is a living thing, with all sorts of different life stages, but the internet as a whole was created in the 1920s.
That’s when the internet first came to fruition as an open-source project.
There’s a lot of history in the books, but there’s not much in the way of historical details.
But what I hope people will take away from these books is that the web was created with a few hundred people, with a little bit of help from the US government and the Federal Communications Commission.
That was the start of the web, and those early days were a very important moment in internet history.
How does it feel to see the internet go through such a transition?
It’s really interesting, and I have no idea how to explain it other than to say, “Oh, shit!”
I can’t tell you how grateful I am to the people who created this technology and to those people who helped make it happen.
I hope that it gives you some insight into how things actually worked back in the day.
I’m glad to see that we’re on the path to a future that is more open and participatory, and that we’ve got a lot to learn from each other.
I also hope that these books give you some inspiration to think creatively about how to make the future better for everyone, and hopefully inspire you to take action.
If you have a story to tell, please feel free to send it to me.
Thank you, Liz, for taking the time to answer my questions.
I will be writing a follow-up to this post later this week, with more in-depth research into how and why the internet changed in the 20-30 years since I first wrote about it.
