When I first saw this shirt I thought of my kids… When I was the age of my oldest (13) I was fairly unaware of the “internet”. While our home PC had a slot for a modem, we didn’t have one installed. I knew about Compuserve and Prodigy, systems that allowed computers to talk together an send messages to different users, access news & bulletin boards, etc. but the Internet as we know it today, i.e. the World Wide Web accessible via a web browser, was not quite a thing yet. Mosaic wouldn’t come about till ’93 (later becoming Netscape Navigator … oh the browser wars!).

So for me to say this to my kids would be slightly inaccurate. Yes, the internet still went skaweereweert, but I was unaware of that fact until 1994.
