How it All Began

InternetThis morning I had a recollection of how my Internet experience started. I was about 14 when I went with my mother to buy a modem. Shortly afterwards, while playing tennis, I could not get off my mind the fact that I had spent an afternoon talking to someone from Holland (on IRC). Each one of us has had that first Internet experience, which is worth remembering.

Try it now. Reminisce.

The information revolution is one which few generations live to see. Most will be born to live it.

    I have difficulty remembering my first sexual experience, let alone my first meaningful computer experience. However, back in the days when I was a novice computer user, I got a shocking e-mail from an Argentinian man with my same surname. He did a genealogy search and found me. It turned out we were distant relatives through my grandfather and his great grandfather, and after a year of daily back & forth messages, I invited him to Miami. He marveled at the luxury and lifestyle and loved the opulence at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach.

    It has taken a long time, but I believe I have finally tamed this wild animal called a computer. I think I have solved a million problems, came close to trashing it, and yet always enamored with it.

    So, the love affair goes onward!
