As much as I enjoy the new, I get nostalgic for the "old" internet. By that I mean, the internet I remember of the late 90s/early 2000s. (I realize many have experienced it earlier). I miss having a personal site, but I don't miss all the invasiveness that most social networks have. I was reading a great thread on Hacker News (where else?) on "the small web" and that's where I found this place. (The link is here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=23326329 ) So time to give this a try. 5/30/2020
