One reason I don’t feel nostalgic about yesterday’s Internet

If you want to find out everything there is to know about Syfy these days, it’s simple—just open up a browser, go to http://www.syfy.com/, and you’ll discover all the info you could possibly want.

But eighteen years ago, getting online for the scoop about what was then the Sci-Fi Channel was a wee bit more complicated, as this column from the June 1994 issue of Sci-Fi Entertainment proves. (It would have gone on sale around April 30.)

I don’t know about you, but except for the great times I had back when it seemed as if the entire SF community centered around GEnie, I’m not at all nostalgic for the good old days of the Internet!
