R4 Where were you in the mid 1980s to mid 1990s when the internet/browsers as we know it today were being developed? Hmm? I'll bet not in the workforce which means you were a student. Somewhere between K-12 as I gather from your misinformed post. But whatever grade you were in, you were not in the workforce. You were a student.
That means you had nothing to do with the R&D of the internet. Or the browser technology, all of which, both on the software and hardware side, were being developed in the early 90s as were the early (pre-google) search engines, which were patchy and difficult to navigate until today's "elders" upgraded and enhanced the features in addition to everything else they accomplished. You weren't there, I am sure of that.
Remember when your high school teachers told you that the oldest in your generation invented the internet? They were wrong. Teachers and professors alike were strictly academia and didn't know what was *really* going on in Hi-Tech centers such as Silicon Valley, Research Triangle Park and the high-tech corridors of Austin and Boston. The internet was available to those in the defense industry (who started the technology) and the technology sector; working adults not students, before it was rolled out to the public in 1995. And even at that time most people were still not using the internet just because the browser was developed and it was available.
The majority of the people involved and immersed in the technology revolution, especially during the early to mid 90s were, at the time, in their 30s, 40s and 50s, which includes the VC's who funded these ventures and start-ups. If you do the math they are now between 60 and 75, they are not in your age group.
And as an aside, the reason many eldgergays still have a landline *in addition to their cell phone that they've had since the 90s* (again, before you entered adulthood) is because they know, from having had no other option than a landline, up until they were in their 30s and 40s, that (News Flash) the 911 System was designed for landline telephones, transmitting your call AND your location/address too, instantly, over a hard-wired connection. FYI, a cellphone doesn't do that.
You are not tech savvy. You are tech dependent. Two different things. And stop bashing the very people who played a role in the design and research and development of the very technology that allows you to bash them. Time to grow up and get over yourself.
