I guess the first web browser and HTML are 1990/1991-ish, but that so denies the awesomeness of Gopher, etc which predate the WWW Smile

Ah, but what about the miracle of prodigy.com, which pre-dated the www? How well I remember: I went to the computer store and bought a kit for more than I could comfortably afford, which included a 5" floppy disc with software and a miraculous (and large) 2400kbs modem to plug into the phone line. And shazam! I could send messages to anyone else who was on prodigy! There were message boards, weather reports, airline reservations (only for one single airline, however) and other miracles. But it was a closed circle, there was no way to reach outside of it. It took a long time after email was becoming widespread before Prodigy finally got connected and it became possible to contact anyone who wasn't also a prodigy subscriber.

Hard to believe that prodigy.com, which no longer exists, was once the second biggest name in personal online services, even before AOL.

More here.

How primitive. My first modem moved at a blazing 9600kbs.

I also had Prodigy, which eventually offered a gateway to the World Wide Web. I remember warnings about stumbling onto porn sites. Nothing about scammers, though.

My first modem did 1200 bps down, 300 up! Used it on BBS systems. Later (still pre-internet time) I moved to Compuserve (which apparently still exists today!).

Oh, what memories. I used to be a rep for prodigy and helped them in local advertising.

Our eventual modem was 1200 baud having started out at 300, then 600 baud. We used a Tandy TL and had no hard drive. I "modemed" on three BBS's as we called them. Only one person could be on the BBS at one time and using dial up and hoping you could get on the BBS if someone had logged off.

How lame. My first "modem" was an acoustic connector where you had to plug your telephone onto some rubber things, and it did 300bps. Of course you had to dial manually (on your telephone). I remember this was quite a sohpisticated item, as none of my friends had one at that time, and they were quite skeptical as to what sense it would make to connect one computer to another.

^ Modems are overestimated. Still using this gem, proven technology. Well, most of the time anyway, depending on the operator's skills. The good ones get me 3 bps. The bad side is having a sore throat at the end of the day shouting binary code at them. 00111010 01101100 01101111 01101100 00111010

Was just thinking that I had fun with a modem way earlier than that.
Can you imagine what a lot of spare time you had then Smile

I thought the internet was the mesh in my swim trunks. I communicate with the world using this little reed looking thing, and a specialized combination of beeps and boops.

in fact, we sing songs through it, the most popular one being "Sending out a dit-dit-dit dah-dah-dah dit-dit-dit" by the Police.

edit: Fixed a horrible typo
