I was in my twenties in the mid 1990s when the online era began its pervasive worldwide invasion. I worked in New York City’s “Silicon Alley”. At the time, if you could write a line of HTML code you were deemed cutting edge. In fact, if you even knew what HTML code was you were considered a hot commodity. Jobs were plentiful, perks were outrageous, and the possibilities seemed endless. Of course most folks had a painfully slow dial up connection back then. The high speed internet highway still needed to be built in earnest. And there was the soul crushing internet bubble that burst eventually in 2000. It wasn’t the end of course. In fact, 15 years later we still find ourselves at the beginning.
