I’m pre-www and found www annoying and clunky at first to use. I bet that gopher would win.
Online since 1989 (PC-link which was later AOL) and BBS’, and in 1990, internet, BITNET, Usenet (netnews), started a mailing list (like a Facebook group is today) that got big and I ran from 1990-1997.
Used to compose replies to BBS forums posts + usenet at work and upload them when I got home.
For me everything’s only gotten better + better and better.
