Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker yes: "What was your first interaction with the internet like?"

The very first time I was on the internet, I was at university, and—I don't even remember what the interface was; it was even pre-ICQ, I believe—I was talking to some guy (literally just talking to him, not "talking to" in the colloquial sense of sorta-dating) who was also at university, somewhere in Kentucky. He seemed very nice and funny, and then we started talking politics and social issues, and he turned into a nightmare the end.

That was my introduction to the internet. Yup.
