There was the bbs, geeks dialed in and said, "Hey this is cool!"
The along came Al Gore and his invention, the Interwebs.
Soon the Interwebs became more like their inventor, Fat, Bloated and lazy.
And the chosen one sent us Saint Oleg who brought forth The High Road.
And Yea the Signal:Noise Ratio went up and gungeeks the world over rejoiced.
Originally this was going to be the start of a much larger post. That one is coming but I thought this really deserved its own place. Am I dating myself to say I used a 1200 baud modem hard wired into the phone line that was the same size as my computer to dial into the bbs's back in the day? Or that my first connection was a teletype terminal with rubber cups to place the phone handset into to call into a DEC10? Or that I was working for a Tandy Corp when the Trash-80 came out and already had a few years of programming under my belt by that time?
But- I thought the science was settled!
