Electricity, as we know it today, is something many of us often take for granted with little consideration of the process that went into understanding, and harnessing this essential and powerful commodity. The history of electricity is fascinating in its own right, and if you are interested, I highly recommended researching the topic.
But the point is, we didn’t really start consuming electricity as we know it today (as in using it at home). Until about a hundred years ago (sockets were only introduced in the late 1800s). Which, in historical terms, is not only recent but the fact that we have wireless chargers available today. Is something that would make your great-grandparents astonished.
On a similar notion, the world-wide-web only really started gaining traction in the late 90s. With every website looking like a carbon copy of the previous, including the flashing word art and solid colour text. Gradients were too fancy back then, apparently.
If you weren’t around back then and want to get a idea of how websites looked. A fun little tool to check out is this website. The MIDI music reminds me of the website I made for my A level ICT class.
