What was your first experience with the internet?


Recommended Posts

We had WebTV. It was actually cool because we could sit comfy on our couch. Problem though, it tied up the phone line & was extremely slow. This was in 2000 or so. Anybody remember WebTV? I'm curious if others used it as their first experience.

Until about 2010 we had DSL that mostly could not do anything.  Streaming any sort of video required waiting a good 30 minutes for it to buffer and live streaming was basically not a thing.  So all the fancy services like WebTV were never a thing for me and most of the people I grew up with.

It was in the year 2000. I can't remember exactly which website I went to, but knowing what I was interested in at the time, it was probably something related to Lego 😛 .

It is amazing how popular Lego is.  Not only did it thrive post internet, but there are entire parts of the internet dedicated to it at this point.  Even the movies, shows, etc. show just how well Lego has done in world where tech has killed off a lot of toy products.
