The Last Bulldozer on the Internet

Remember those cute little construction workers on late-1990s Geocities pages? Their mere presence promised that somewhere behind the scenes a clever teen was busily preparing personal tidbits for public consumption.

In a bit of technological nostalgia - at least since I moved to LA six months ago - the web site for Los Angeles Magazine has housed this retro bulldozer GIF. As the September issue hits my mailbox, the dozer still scrapes July.

Shouldn't a perfectly readable city mag with an audience of 450,000 (average net worth $1,418,000) offer a bit more online?

Besides, all the Internets are under construction. That's the nature of this series of tubes. No need to call it out.
