Ten Years Online

Posted by Mike on 15th July 2009

Ten years ago I first got online when I signed up for a Yahoo email address. I’m not sure why I did it, other than I wanted to have my own email address.  I remember several years earlier having to justify getting an email address at work. (I needed to work on problems with IBM support!)  At the time, it cost $1.25 per email to send them through the mainframe.

Then in January of 2002 I setup the first version of mikesmind.com.  You can see the page in the Wayback Machine. (The images and background are missing now.) I think I was blogging before blogging was so popular! In 2004 I moved this site to XOOPS and in November of 2004 I moved this site to WordPress.

Over the years I have setup several websites, participated on others, joined forums, and enjoyed the internet. It just seems that I have been online for more than 10 years! During that time, I also made the switch from Windows to Linux.  So much has been made possible because of the access to information that the internet provides.  I would say that the best internet inventions have been Google, RSS feeds, and WordPress.
