I’ve been blogging since before that was a word. I think it was called “messing about on the Internet” at the time!
In terms of Social Media I was involved in Compuserve and CIX from 1992 onwards, which involved modems, telephone lines and astronomical telephone bills! It was all good clean fun, but then In 1997 everything changed when CIX offered me an IP connection. I already had www access courtesy of Compuserve and WinCIM, but this was different, not least because part of the bundle was a whopping 256kB of my own webspace. The original page I had there was a collection of rather risque jokes garnered from various sources – the early web was a far more anarchic place than it is now, as were the bulletin boards of the time. I was also beginning to use my PC for imaging applications and around the same time the price of an entry level flatbed scanner dropped from £600 to £200 so I was in, and around 1998 the space bundled with my CIX account increased to 1MB then incrementally more as time went on. so I had a small image archive online.
Here, I’ll be rescuing a few still relevant bits of my web presence from years gone by, purely out of curiosity!
