Ten years of… whatever [1]

Just the other day, it came to me that I’ve been around this Intarnet for 10 years.

Yes, you’ve heard that right, but don’t bother sending me congratulations. I will return those right away, including the spam you send along with them. Those 10 years: It’s a long story too. I can’t exactly recall which day I decided to ‘subscribe’ to the Internet, but it must have been in between September and December of 1994. It was a rather cold day and my first ISP had a wide choice of plans: long distance for 5 Guilders an hour.

That was a pretty expensive offer, which I then considered a steal. I remember people asking me ‘what this Intarnet was all about. ‘You can travel the WORLD behind your computer’, was my enthusiastic answer. Sure.

    It’s a window on the world. The information super highway. They must have thought someone would organize it some how by now.
