How Wikipedia Would Have Worked In The 1980s

I’m so thankful I never used a computer in the 1980s, because it looks mind-scrunchingly frustrating. I would probably hate technology because of it. So thank you to all the patient geniuses who took the time to use things like DOS for the rest of us. Even if today’s tools existed back then, it would still be so much worse with yesterday’s limitations.

SquirrelMonkeyCom shows how woefully inept computing was in the 1980s by imagining how Wikipedia would have worked. It’s not exactly as fun as the Wikipedia rabbit holes I find myself crawling through every other day. [SquirrelMonkeyCom via Laughing Squid]
