krpalmer: Imagination sold and serviced here: Infocom (infocom)
Seeing it's been a specific number of years since a specific day in history and putting a few thoughts together about it has been one way for me to make up some content for this journal. This summer, though, when I wound up thinking it's now been twenty years since I "got on the Internet" I realised I don't have the exact day that happened recorded. The memories came back anyway. While it might have happened a decade after the period of "home computer history" I've dwelt on of late (when modems retrieved mere text little faster than someone could read it and you either dialled into a local BBS or a pricier and larger, yet still circumscribed, commercial service), it is something I hadn't missed big parts of at the time.
A process of discovery )
