Mac OS X In agreement with Marco Arment? I shall quickly venture outside and inform myself of the possibility of catching a fleeting glimpse of an avian sus scrofa domesticus. "The Mac App Store is in significant danger of becoming an irrelevant, low-traffic flea market where buyers rarely venture for serious purchases. And I bet that's not what Apple had in mind at all." There's an issue with the Mac App Store: Apple runs the danger of chasing most serious applications away from the store. While I would personally consider this to be a big win for computing, I'm sure Apple doesn't exactly see it that way.

Late 1980s the Web? Don't tell that to Tim Berners-Lee - who seems happy thinking he made the first web browser, server, website in 1990-91 time frame ;)

Your time scales seem a bit off in general, more or less corresponding to when a given activity could be reasonably first done - but computers were still geeky overall throughout the 80s or even early 90s, similar emails/BBSs/Usenet (some of those hardly really caught on with general population, or in very changed form, likewise computers), webcams and such also early naughties. Especially when looking less at Bay Area, more world at large.
