I was working at a big financial company back in the 1990’s and the first computer was a departmental one with the green screen and white type. It printed out huge reports on that wide green-and-tan striped paper with the tiny holes on the tear-off edges that held it in place on the feeder spools.
I transferred to a new department where we sent out a lot of form letters and there were 2 or 3 cathode ray tube computers on which the employees would take turns adding names & addresses and printing the form letters. Still the small green screen and white font, I think.
I was in the Midwest and had a co-worker in Seattle who I’d talk to on the phone from time to time. She told me about this thing called eBay and she and her husband bought an antique dining room table on that website. I had a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that a person could actually do something like that.
Later on, in another job there, we each had our own computers, but no internet. Seems to me when we later got the internet, we were sternly told to never use it for personal things, but somebody knew about something called Google Maps and we all gathered around somebody’s desktop computer and were absolutely astonished that we could look up our home towns and find our houses and so forth.
