Lovely article by Jason Snell about the early days of Mac users and the web.

“One of the amazing things about going on the internet for the first time is discovering that you’re not alone. All those things that you love, that people think you’re weird for loving? The internet is full of people just like you, who love that thing too! In the ’90s that’s what happened with websites covering Apple and the Mac. We formed a giant user group of people who loved this thing that everyone else thought was irrelevant at best and idiotic at worst: the Mac.”
