Things were so simple and elegant with the web; now they've become complex, commercial and sinister. Reading about XML, I feel like I've had enough of cyberspace, like I have to withdraw from it to some degree, for sanity's sake. My decision to make this site exactly one year (1998 - my journal year) is related to these feelings. Pleasant nostalgia of those early days before animated GIFs and CGI... trying to recall the web-sites that mattered early on, and how they've changed. An example might be ("Citizen: The Computer is Your Friend") - it was a good source of all kinds of (potentially subversive) information I and we hadn't had such immediate access to before - it's gone, now.
