#3: We Know What You Did

from Reply All on December 3, 2014

Episode summary from Pots:

Twenty years ago, Ethan Zuckerman did something terrible on the internet: he invented what would become the pop-up ad. Today, he’s still living with the consequences. A fascinating recap of how this discovery came about and how it all went wrong. Amongst other things, a nice taste of how the internet used to be (Tripod, Geocities, etc).
