i was just thinking, i've been online since around 85 or so when my parents got a c-64 and a 300 baud modem. sort of . . it was BBS's then, not really online. i remember downloading gauntlet - and it took like three days or something on a BBS. then amiga 500, a dropout from all computer use for a few years, pc in 95 and got the web as we know it. damn - a long time now
so thats 20 years. thats the greater part of your life. seems rough to me, if i think about that this way. i read an article once about how robots are going to be the end of human civilization - not that they would attack us, but that we've become so hooked on them and we will be dependent even more. i've been at my friends cottage in the mountains for the new year. that house's there like 100 years. the only connection was some old radio. and drinking wine and smoking grass and throwing wood into the fireplace. but that's more like a connection to the universe. haha.
ha! no i didn't mean to paint a picture of me sitting in front of a computer for 20 years straight or anything. it's just been that amount of time that i've had access to online stuff. i also ate some food, i went outside a couple times . . .
