I came across The Video Game Museum (VGM) recently while doing some research for a side project. It's a website dedicated to archiving the history of video games. I'm personally really interested in the video game preservation and archeology scene, mainly due to the sheer nostalgia I feel when remembering the past.
The web is a place full of passion and imagination. However, over the last decade, it's slowly started to lose this essence. At least, for me. With the advent of massive social media platforms by Google, Facebook, Twitter and many more, browsing the web has been restricted to a handful of portals. Now and then I'd follow a link elsewhere but immediately bounce back, visiting the same websites over and over.
It wasn't always like this. The freedom of the web and its many dedicated communities is one of the factors that drove me to where I am now. And I want to rediscover those forces again.
In this series, I'm going to explore the web again. Find the stuff I appreciate, and actually put some thought into it. I don't have any strict plans for it, no candidates, no structure. I'll just go with it and see where it takes me.
