From clip art to Comic Sans: These screenshots from 25 years ago show just how much the internet has changed

Web Design Museum A report from Morgan Stanley analysts in 1996 predicted the prevalence of the internet. It said a person of intermediate web literacy was anyone who simply knew their own email address. From clip art to Comic Sans, screenshots show how different the internet looks 25 years later. See more stories on Insider's business page. Morgan Stanley tech analysts Mary Meeker and Chris DePuy knew the world was on the cusp of something big in 1996. They drafted a 323-page repor...

Second Circuit Rejects an Account Termination Lawsuit…Again (Phew!)–Domen v. Vimeo

Domen posted videos advocating for sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE). Vimeo terminated his account. Domen sued Vimeo for the termination, alleging that it discriminated against him. The district court dismissed Domen’s complaint. The Second Circuit affirmed, in a precedent-setting opinion relying on Section 230(c)(2)(A). Domen sought a rehearing, and Vimeo didn’t file opposition papers. Last week, the panel issued a brief order granting the rehearing and vacating its prior opinion. This ...

Michael Arrington’s next act

As longtime TechCrunch readers know well, Michael Arrington cofounded TechCrunch and Crunchbase, as well as the venture fund CrunchFund, which was later renamed Tuesday Capital. But In 2017, Arrington announced that he was shifting gears and becoming a full-time crypto investor, and despite a volatile ride since, he isn’t looking back, seemingly. As he said during an interview late last week, “I like reinventing myself and I think more people should do that.” On the heels of new fund announcemen...

‘Fear Street’ Spoiler Review: Netflix’s Horror Trilogy Mines Nostalgia While Looking to the Future

Netflix’s Fear Street trilogy, a three-week spree of crimes against innocent Shadysiders, ended on Friday. It’s possibly the biggest slasher-movie event since the 2018 Halloween broke box-office records for its franchise and production company. There have been other slasher flicks since then; the bloody body-swap Freaky comes to mind as one genre torch-bearer, seen mostly on VOD late last year. However, with its staggered release pattern — instant summer sequels, now available to stream! — Fear...

It Can Always Get Dumber: Trump Sues Facebook, Twitter & YouTube, Claiming His Own Government Violated The Constitution (techdirt)

Yes, it can always get dumber. The news broke last night that Donald Trump was planning to sue the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter for his "deplatforming." This morning we found out that they were going to be class action lawsuits on behalf of Trump and other users who were removed, and now that they're announced we find out that he's actually suing Facebook & Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter & Jack Dorsey, and YouTube & Sundar Pichai. I expected the lawsuits to be performative nonsense, but these are... w...

Evernote quietly disappeared from an anti-surveillance lobbying group’s website

In 2013, eight tech companies were accused of funneling their users’ data to the U.S. National Security Agency under the so-called PRISM program, according to highly classified government documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Six months later, the tech companies formed a coalition under the name Reform Government Surveillance, which as the name would suggest was to lobby lawmakers for reforms to government surveillance laws. The idea was simple enough: to call on lawmakers to lim...

Why Email Providers Scan Your Emails (slashdot)

An anonymous reader shares a report: If you receive emails flagged as spam or see a warning that a message might be a phishing attempt, it's a sign that your email provider is scanning your emails. The company may do that just to protect you from danger, but in some situations it can delve into your communications for other purposes, as well. Google announced that it would stop scanning Gmail users' email messages for ad targeting in 2017 -- but that doesn't mean it stopped scanning them altoget...

‘Fear Street Part 1: 1994’ Review: A Bloody Love Letter to Horror Fans Who Grew Up in the Era of ‘Scream’

A blood-drenched love letter to horror fans who came of age in the era of Scream, Leigh Janiak‘s Fear Street Part 1: 1994 is a creepy, funny, ultra-violent take on the type of teen-centric horror popularized by R.L. Stine near the dawn of the 21st century. Stine may be more famous for his Goosebumps books aimed at middle-grade readers, but he also had a whole slew of Fear Street titles geared towards (slightly) older audiences. This Fear Street isn’t an adaptation of any specific Stine book, bu...

Section 230 Preempts Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) Claims–Henderson v. Source for Public Data

Section 230 and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) have always had an implicit conflict. The FCRA is an old-school regulation of electronic databases run by credit reporting agencies, who gather and republish third-party data. As a result, any FCRA liability for that data seems inconsistent with Section 230’s rule that electronic databases aren’t liable for third-party content. This opinion addresses that tension head-on, and Section 230 comes out on top. But unfortunately, the opinion reach...

AOL Propelled Lawyers Onto the Internet

Verizon announced this morning that it is selling its media business – AOL and Yahoo – for $5 Billion. I couldn’t help but recall how AOL launched me from a practicing lawyer to a legal tech entrepreneur. The same was true for many other lawyers. AOL was the entry to the Internet in the 1990’s. Heck, we did not even call “it” the Internet or the World Wide Web (WWW). We called AOL an online community that we accessed via our home phone lines plugged into a disc we picked up at Barn...
