There was a time when a browser was someone looking around a store, when a server was someone taking your order, and when Spam was a food you didn’t request. Nowadays, however, those words are more likely to refer to the Internet.
There was even a time when the word “Internet” was new. So was email, blog, broadband, download, hashtag. And while I welcome these new words—and the technologies they describe—it makes me yearn for some of the old words I don’t hear anymore. Words my grandparents used.
