Just as it always been for me.
I have always been online. I remember using Windows 95
on a brand new computer in the front room of our house.
I remember mom had Juno email to write her sisters.
I remember having a broadband modem early, 1.0 megabits down
designed for always-on connectivity but for which we would turn off
every night as a security measure.
I can remember virtually nothing about my life
before I started playing Runescape
in the spring or summer of 2002.
I was 10 years old.
The Internet allows me to remember
when events occured in my life.
The emergence of certain games
and websites are frequent landmarks
on my memory map.
There are a lot of blurry offline memories
