Sad illustration...
I had first vision for this after reading some chapters of "Permanent Record".

@madargon
The internet we remembered from 20 years ago has died anyway.

Most people (except like here) have disappeared from the web into closed mobile messengers groups, not even events or social meetups can be found anymore.

@madargon two panel comic. first is titled "internet at the beginning..." it's an exciting playground. second is titled "internet now..." it looks run-down, dangerous and uninviting. a person is walking through it and thinking "I hate this crap..."

@madargon The left panel actually made me legitimately nostalgic. I feel even angrier than before now, and I am basically angry about corporations literally 24/7

@brother I didn't have internet access before 2008. And before going to the University I used computer mostly for games - and as an outsider not interested in mainstream lifestyle I didn't have any reason to live online. So I didn't experience "original" internet personally. I got to know that mostly from books and stories heard from tech people. I only remember immortal rule "don't use real names and publish photos" from my childhood. I think parents should teach their children this nowadays.

@madargon Definitely. The "nothing to hide" narrative needs to die.

I got an Internet connection in 1997. None of us knew this ridiculous clown circus was coming. Fuck.
