I first used the internet in 1997. Getting a computer was out of our family budget since computers used to start around $1900 for a very basic model with a 14" CRT monitor. So I used to go to the public library as they had opened an area to use computers.
It was so slow with the V.34/28.8k modems of the time. Back them we used to have Windows 95 and sites like Yahoo were just starting out. The most popular browser was Netscape Navigator and people at home who could afford computers used America Online! to search the Internet. I remember using Yahoo one time and everytime I wanted to search for something, this new thing called "Google" kept popping out wanting me to use it instead of Yahoo.
I remember when we could not use the computers at the library for like a week because they were getting upgraded to Windows 98 and when we came back they had faster 56K modems!
I still have and use my first Yahoo email address that I made in 1997 and I made my eBay account in 1999.
I remember something revolutionary that happened and everybody was using it. It was a way to talk to other people besides email!!! They called the program ICQ and later people came out with the name Instant Messaging for that new form of communication.
1998 I believe. I had just stared 6th grade and my dad bought a Walmart special HP on sale for ~$600 for the family. It had Windows 98 and a 4 gig hdd :D. About 1/2 way through that year we go 56k Dial-up, and I spend a lot of time tying up the phone line :P. I had used it a bit earlier in the year at school, but not much.
Then in 2001 we moved closer to town and got DSL.
I was probably in like fourth grade, which was in 2004. My friends and I were obsessed with neopets.com, haha. I hardly went on the computer that much at that age, though.
um. I'm not positive but maybe 3rd grade. 2005ish. I know I used a computer in 2nd grade but I dont think I used the internet.
Sad to say I only been on the internet about 4 yrs :-/ so I was 31 my first time
Ooo... Good question. Maybe the 2nd grade? 1999 Or something? Lol I'm not sure!
i think like in the 2nd grade which would be like 2005 or 2006 c;
1995. I used Archie and Veronica to search FTP sites and usenet.
Oh the year was 2008
