"To the credit of today's social networks, they've brought in hundreds of millions of new participants [...] but they haven't shown the web itself the respect and care it deserves, as a medium which has enabled them to succeed.

When I got started on the web in '94-95, most pages were somehow related to Star Trek
and recognizing William Shatner
as the god that he is. It's funny, but the old stuff like the Mosaic's What's New page
, Jerry Yang's

points to Netscape. Who says the web is temporary?
