You can use the way back when machine to look at the internet as it was in 2001.

You can even view ref-eng as it was back then, with only 420 members and the most online was only 16!

Do you not find it a little disturbing that Google has this much data on all our online lives?
Along with every email that passed thru their servers, every web search, every page you looked at....
If they have this much what do the government agencies have?

Man I remember back in the early 90s when Webcrawler was king. I just visited it for the first time in almost a decade, and the first 15 links of my search were to advertisers sites. Im afraid Google has a monopoly, and thus has declined.
