I used internet little late that is when i was in the 9th grade. I went to the cybercafe first time with my sister.she had to check her mails. She was explaining me each and every step about how to open an email etc..etc...that moment i was so keen to learn it as it was a totally new field and something exciting. Till today the excitement is the same !! What about you ppl..??

wow, 9th grade. I started using the internest when I was in the 5th grade. I played computer games and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Now I am making the internet into some personal income for me. I am working part time online, working about 1-2 hours a day as an online marketer, and I make about $80-$120 a day. The internet is one of the best inventions ever, and it is here to stay.

It was in 2001 that my family bought the computer, at that time i was in junior middle school or.. i can't remember exactly. But it is strange that we didn't connect the internet and i forgot the reason clearly. Perhaps at that time i was devoted myself to study an had on interests in it. Haha... This situation lasts until i went to senior middle school. Once my father asked me if i need to check information online. With my positive answer, my family soon connect the internet and i can surf the internet.

This discussion makes me feel really old, because I first used the internet as soon as it came out. I was in college, and everyone was talking about this new thing called email and how great it was. It was a thing called the Mainframe and it was an black screen with green writing, no way to change the color, and it was hard to read, you had to squint and kept seeing in green after a while. The world wide web did not exist, instead we had a thing called Gopher that would pull up info. I remember when the internet first came in to existence, and I searched the web for the first time and it was really strange. In college, we had the cutting edge techonology in our computer labs and it was incredible how much things changed in just a few short months, from those awful green screens to an actual net with pictures and different fonts to, a year later, the internet that we all know and love. I have watched it grow from the beginning and transform my world. It's quite extradinary.

I started using the internet just a couple of years ago. Before that, I didn't even know exactly what e-mail was. Now, I use the internet regularly for many reasons.

I first used the Internet in the early nineties sometime maybe before than at work, I don't remember exactly. I do remember it was very limited compared to today. I think the service I was using was Prodigy and of course it was dial-up with a very primitive modem which makes me think I used it in some form in the mid to late eighties because it seems I used such primitive modems at work then.
