My First Internet

Inspired by a Berkman Fellows Hour ice breaker that conjured up such rich stories from our community, I’m pulling together a collection of first encounters or memories of the internet on Medium. 

Here’s the first in the series:

Enchanting Chatrooms: on my days in the Wiccan chatrooms of AOL 

The Keys to the Internet: Maggie Koerth-Baker's account of an epic adventure into the depths of her local library to access the internet with her mom 

I’d love to share more of your stories. BBS, university connections, Prodigy at a friend’s house… Hit me up with a draft and I can invite you to publish in the collection!
