    I was interested in computers in the 00s but never got into the IM game until latter, What was IM like back then. aHah I still kind of not really consciously remember yahoo and the likes of AOL and those internet shenanigans that brings back so many nostalgic memories :eek:

    70's? Really? Al Gore didn't even invent the internet until the 80's.

    But I would love to hear about how people made money on a 2400 baud dial up connection that simply dumped you into an IRC chat room. I never did anything that made money on the internet until I had a 54k dial up connection and then it all came from porn forum spam.

    I mean, that was the only way I saw people making money on the internet....

    Yeah, in the 70s there are no IM yet, we all were still playing games :)

    I am from the late 90s in the stuff and things were way way different back then.. but some of the golden rules still apply today :)

    I'm a dinosaur from the early days (95-96). Got my first trademark infringement lawsuit in 98 for duping a large check guarantee business website and putting fake reviews on it criticizing the business. Pretty expensive mistake although I learned volumes about trademark law and law procedures.

    Which came after Windows 3.0 but you guys skipped right over the Windows 95 era which was also before Win98

    Ha ha... Ike was the Matt Cutts of his time!

    My friends dad actually was playing the IM game in the early 90s. I asked him once to describe it. He replied with, "It was like the wild west!"

    Ha ha. Imagine how easy it must have been?

    EDIT: Actually, is that Eisenhower? I can't tell.
