It’s hard to believe that such a widely used service is ending…
It’s one of many services that I used long before it was bought by a giant.
(For example: grandcentral before it was bought and made into Google Voice)
I have often been an early adopter. There is hardly a google product I use that I didn’t use before it was bought by google (Writely, Youtube, etc.)
We used to be called early adopters, now it just means we are old.
At 39 years old I am a grandfather on the internet. Grandfathered in.
Some of us know a lot about how the internet works under the hood though.
Anyway, rant, over.
