Love this piece. “Under Construction signs showed that behind an unfinished website, a person was there, working on it... [The loss of GeoCities and its mindset] is the loss of the idea that you are the maker of the World Wide Web”  https://youtu.be/2LzyRcLJdlg 

A great companion piece, from @alexwolfco. I couldn’t choose just one quote.  https://youtu.be/Cl323DAyASo 

Ep. 11 of @anildash’s Function also has incredible interviews with insiders from the earliest forms of web creation and social media (Open Diary, Diaryland, & LiveJournal). A time capsule with so many brilliant historical insights and projections.  https://glitch.com/culture/function-episode-11/
