Today, while randomly browsing through some old bookmarks, I came across a link to this 2015 Medium article written by an Iranian blogger, about changes he observed in how people used the internet in 2008, when he was imprisoned, to how people used the internet by 2014, when he was released.

The contrast between the blog-based internet of 2008 and the "walled-garden" streams of 2014 remains important to think about, and the article is good encouragement for continuing my practice of spending more of my time among the hyperlinks and less of my time in the television-like streams.

That's a really excellent article and I have already sent it to two people; thanks for sharing it! I too miss the older Internet; having opted out of most all stream-based social media has left me far more isolated than I prefer, socially.
