It’s been ~20 years since my first BBS experience

People say Gen Y is the first generation to grow up online…

but they’re wrong.

I knew a lot of kids my age who were into BBSs, Usenet, Fidonet, etc way back when.

I wonder if anyone’s done a study to see how many 30-40 yr olds who are now in senior positions at online companies once frequented BBSs?

    LOL! I shouldn’t feed the trolls, but uh, if you think BBSes have only been around since 1989, you don’t know your online history.
