I just got this email in my inbox. An ad for using MSN as a portal. A big visual ad that didn’t work in plain text.
I’m not sure what to say. Do they not realize what year it is? Is this some kind of warped throwback Thursday?
What strange frozen-in-time scenario results in this kind of thing and how can I get in on it? I’d like to go back to a time when the internet was so incredibly simple to master that you could be assured of top rankings with just a few simple tweaks… Back further to when Altavista and Yahoo vied for top dog and Googol was just one to the hundredth power…. When AOL billed me monthly whether I liked it or not.
Ahhh…. those were the days.
Okay, enough of nostalgia for simpler portal-driven times.
