  • In the late 80's one of my employers had "internet" access, but it was called something else. Anyone could get it, but there wasn't a lot on it yet.

  • I remember being able to go online when I got my first computer back in...I think it was 1998 or 99. It had been around for a year or two before that, that I'd heard about. It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I learned that it had been around way longer than that.

  • Big debate about that. Some will argue that it's technically been around since the telegraph...
