17 Things People In Delaware Did Before The Internet Took Over Our Lives
Twenty-seven years ago, in 1989, an English scientist invented the world wide web, and life changed as we knew it. Email, websites, chat rooms, social media, and really the entire internet (which is even older), has surpassed our wildest imaginations.
Technology has revolutionized so much, but there are sure times when many of us wish things were like they once were – simpler, more personal, more in-the-moment. While many of the things below are probably not just relevant to Delaware, I know a lot of you (and me) miss simpler days. We still CAN do these things, we just need to be sure to turn off the tech to do so.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The internet has brought us some great things (like websites where you can learn about your favorite state), but some would argue that it has disconnected us, rather than connect us. What are some things you would add to the list?
