Arhhh, 2002… The year started on a Tuesday, the all girl surf movie Blue Crush was released, Andy Irons (RIP) was world champion (and the two following years, cheeky little three in a row)… But in the world of online, things were just booting up. Slowly.

Internet users were just starting to use high-speed broadband access, instead of that slow dial-up. Gone were the days of waiting. We could download a whole song in 10 minutes!

Fast forward to 2012: Computers are even more polished, and the Internet is faster. Ten years ago, Internet usage was more of a leisure — today, it’s practically as important as water or oxygen.
