I spent some time this weekend researching different web-based tools for creating timelines, after getting an idea for a project I might want to propose at work, when I came across this. I remember when I was in college, and 1989 was winding down, my friends and I were all kind of struck by the fact that the first decade we could remember from it start was coming to an end. I’m sure we all said we felt “old.” at the time.
So, children of the 80s, how much of this stuff do you remember? Anything left out that you’d want to add.
At this point I think “old” is relative, but when a decade of your life becomes nostalgia fodder…well, that’s something.
