90-91 and earlier. Was watching the testing of hi speed data connections between universitys. The rest of the world was on BBS technology.. And I do not mean the wheels..

That was the first internet though.. two small networks across the US hooked up. And the first emails "what is that @ symbol for?"

The only thing I really remeber using the internet for as a kid was looking up porno at friends houses.
