I was most pleased the day I had a direct lesson that “nostalgia” is another word for “brain rot.”
I remember using a Mac LC 475 all the time in 1995 and 1996, working on a student newspaper. I remembered it as having been just a startling joy to use; haunting in its ease of use.
Then I used Windows 95 with Office 97 for much of 1997.
Then in early 1998 I got in front of an LC 475 again. Holy crap, what is this clunky piece of shit.
Remember: human memory is provably awful, and history is therefore bunk. And you can’t go back again because you’re a different person now.
