Web of Old

I miss the web, when it was the web, and not a platform for building giant applications that require a more expensive computer to use, than to play a very complex 3D massively multiplayer adventure role playing shooter. Then, all I needed to find some information was a keyboard, a screen, and average cheap hardware. Now I need a multi-core CPU with 8GB of RAM, just to load and render some pages. REST feels sort of in the same boat as RISC was 10 years ago, right now.
