The internet is an incredible tool that has revolutionized the way we live, work, and communicate. However, as with any new technology, the rise of the internet has also brought about some unintended consequences. In this article, we will explore 100 things we've lost to the internet and reflect on how this digital revolution has impacted our lives.

1. Handwritten Letters

Handwritten Letters 100 Things We Ve Lost To The Internet

In the past, receiving a handwritten letter in the mail was a cherished experience. However, with the rise of email and instant messaging, the art of letter-writing has become a lost art form. We no longer take the time to carefully craft our thoughts onto paper and patiently wait for a response. Instead, we resort to quick messages sent with a few taps on a keyboard.

98. Encyclopedia Sets

Encyclopedia Sets 100 Things We Ve Lost To The Internet

Before the internet, if you needed to look up information, you had to rely on heavy encyclopedia sets. These beautifully bound books contained a wealth of knowledge on various subjects. However, with the advent of search engines like Google, this physical collection of knowledge has been replaced by digital encyclopedias that can be accessed within seconds.

Privacy 100 Things We Ve Lost To The Internet

In the age of social media and online surveillance, privacy has become a rare commodity. Our personal information is often exposed online, and our every move can be tracked and monitored. The internet has blurred the line between private and public, leaving many of us vulnerable to identity theft and online scrutiny.

100. The Unknown

The Unknown 100 Things We Ve Lost To The Internet

With the internet at our fingertips, there is little room left for the unknown. We can now search for answers to virtually any question within seconds. While this accessibility to information is undoubtedly beneficial, it has also taken away the sense of mystery and discovery that comes with not knowing. The internet has made the world smaller, but it has also made it less magical.

The internet has undoubtedly brought about tremendous progress and convenience. However, it is important to reflect on the things we've lost in this digital revolution. From handwritten letters to privacy, the impact of the internet on our lives cannot be ignored. As we continue to embrace all the advancements the web has to offer, let's also remember to appreciate and preserve the aspects of life that were once cherished before the digital age.

The acclaimed editor of The New York Times Book Review takes readers on a nostalgic tour of the pre-Internet age, offering powerful insights into both the profound and the seemingly trivial things we've lost.

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY CHICAGO TRIBUNE AND THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS • “A deft blend of nostalgia, humor and devastating insights.”—People

Remember all those ingrained habits, cherished ideas, beloved objects, and stubborn preferences from the pre-Internet age? They’re gone.

To some of those things we can say good riddance. But many we miss terribly. Whatever our emotional response to this departed realm, we are faced with the fact that nearly every aspect of modern life now takes place in filtered, isolated corners of cyberspace—a space that has slowly subsumed our physical habitats, replacing or transforming the office, our local library, a favorite bar, the movie theater, and the coffee shop where people met one another’s gaze from across the room. Even as we’ve gained the ability to gather without leaving our house, many of the fundamentally human experiences that have sustained us have disappeared.

In one hundred glimpses of that pre-Internet world, Pamela Paul, editor of The New York Times Book Review, presents a captivating record, enlivened with illustrations, of the world before cyberspace—from voicemails to blind dates to punctuation to civility. There are the small losses: postcards, the blessings of an adolescence largely spared of documentation, the Rolodex, and the genuine surprises at high school reunions. But there are larger repercussions, too: weaker memories, the inability to entertain oneself, and the utter demolition of privacy.

100 Things We’ve Lost to the Internet is at once an evocative swan song for a disappearing era and, perhaps, a guide to reclaiming just a little bit more of the world IRL.
