True enough, but my point was that “nothing need ever be truly lost.”
Ever since I first got internet access, it’s been my personal habit to constantly look up anything and pretty much everything that even vaguely piques my interest… particularly when I hear others discussing something I’ve never heard of; be it new or old school, trivial or life-changing.
But then again, I’m naturally inquisitive, as well as an ‘old soul;’ and to me, instant access to practically unlimited info was nothing short of miraculous.
I genuinely pity the generations that come after me, who take such a vastly powerful resource for granted; they likely won’t truly appreciate what we have until it’s gone.
Same here; due in no small part to the existence of the web.
I just research the context for certain memes and i get enough of a gist of what’s going on I’m really lousy these days at working up the will to watch shows online. For example i really want to watch Atlanta, but find reasons to get distracted.
I watched a lot of TV and read a lot of books growing up. I’m a curious type too, I love being able to search up that thing that just popped up that I can’t place or name immediately. I still think first, but having a portable Library of Alexandria in my pocket is still frankly amazing.
Full disclosure: I didn’t get the Jetson’s reference
I was in my late twenties just a few years ago, and I definitely would have gotten it. The Jetsons were still in syndication when I was in elementary school. It definitely makes me sad when my own peers don’t know these kinds of references.
