I’ve been online since…

Posted by in life

Thinking back, it seems the first time I went “online” was in 1988 (or 1987).  Amiga computer owned by a friend.  We dialed up, connected to the network at NU and then chatted with someone who might have been at U of I. I reckon its hard to take the internet for granted when you remember things once being so simple that all you had was a 14.4 modem, and a terminal prompt.
