Internet era

A period in the information age in which communication and commerce via the Internet became a central focus for businesses, consumers, government, and the media. The Internet era also marks the convergence of the computer and communications industries and their associated services and products. 

Historical perspective: Before the internet and smartphones came along, one had to know how to operate a camera, remember phone numbers, read a paper map, stay up for the evening news, wait for a TV show when it aired, wear an analong watch, wait for snail mail, set an alarm clock, buy goods from a brick and mortar store, and live with pangs of boredom and unknowing... also known as the good old days.
