I is for Internet

This is a glaringly obvious topic, but true for me nevertheless. I have been using the internet since before it was the internet: around 1994, when I finally had a computer with a 2800 baud modem, and all you could access were bbs's and library websites with ftp and telnet. It was all text, and I loved it. Later I signed up for Compuserve, and it was all downhill from there. Now I can't imagine what I would do without it: how would I find directions to anywhere? Look up obscure facts? Find people with the same interests all over the world?
