Did you know that Autostraddle is turning 12 soon? If Autostraddle is anything like *me* at twelve, they are parting their hair in the middle, wearing shirts from Wet Seal with stripes across the chest, and looking for the perfect pair of corduroy boot-cut pants. Also they are having a lot of Big Gay Feelings they will, uh, need to circle back to later!

It’s a love letter to the lost parts of the internet and to the labor of Autostraddle and it’s also the best (unofficial) Business of Art Fix column she’s ever written. When people write about what’s happened to the internet, about the heydays of the indie sites, about the “olden times” of ten whole years ago, they so rarely get it this right. I hope you’ll read it!
