This is true of any age. That's not what's unique.

Technology is relative. In 20 years, we'll view the iPad in the same way.

I think what's missing today is the Wild West sense we had back then. This was before the Internet and the Web took off, and before the dot-com boom. There was a sense of possibility -- the air was really *electric* with it. We felt like we were on the cusp of something.

I suppose you could say the same about today but I don't think you could say it about the documentation. And in the technology realm, it feels more like a next level of the same world rather than an entirely new world.

Just interesting to note.

With so many complex and interlocking systems nowadays, there are so many things to write about that are more interesting than a 3-button mouse.
Admittedly, finding and persuading the right person that you should write about them for pay can be a challenge. But don't be fooled by the relative ease and ubiquity of consumer software and hardware nowadays.
