OK I feel old now
Sitting here going through my old diaries, and I came across this entry:
March 31, 1996
We got the Internet! (America Online)
My screenname is Bella252. Password. spooky.
John’s name is FyreWax because he was trying to make wax, and it caught on fire. It was huge! There was a big fiasco over that. I can’t imagine why he’d want to remember it.
I am ashamed to admit that it took me a long time to realize that the Internet was so much more than AOL. I also didn’t know what a web browser was for a long time, except I had a sneaking suspicion that it had something to do with spiders.
