I miss the Geocities era.
Geocities was janky af, but whoever you were it let you put together your own heartfelt, sincere, clumsy Web pages about whatever obscure crap you cared about, and that was GOOD. That's what the Internet was FOR.
Now it's all been subsumed into 'platforms' that want your 'engagement'. All curated, all polished, all tailored for optimized metrics. It's sucks. It's all so sterile.
I want the janky heartfelt shit back. :(
