I couldn't remember what the N in FAANG stood for because my brain kept saying "Netscape", which is obviously wrong but now has me envisioning an alternate reality where it could've been right.
@a It's the parallel universe where one of the a's in FAANG stands for AOL, the other a stands for Altavista/DEC, and the G stands for GEnie.
@outsider Good lord, I’d forgotten about GEnie. I’m not sure there’s a stable universe where both Netscape and AOL are on this list.
@a I was on GEnie a lot, CompuServ some, and then Delphi. Never AOL or Prodigy. AOL was my source for free floppies, until they started mailing read-only coasters instead.
