This night when Wenhao suddenly messaged me in MSN to say “good night”, a recurrence of the past internet life came into my mind.
That was the time when ICQ was ruling, other than IRC.
There were fewer online chatters when unlimited internet account was not so widely used, and at late hours, usually the ICQ list would be very empty; most of the late sleepers would bid their online contacts goodbye before logging off.
At this era when technology has fully merged into everyone’s life, internet was reachable to most families in Singapore. However, at the convenience of able to chat with more friends online, you get to ignore more and more friends as you cannot spend your time with everyone.
The internet, supposing to link people up and fasten communication, apparently starts to distant friends.
