    I remember the days of dial up internet. I certainly don't miss them days but they do serve as a reminder how the evolution of technology has changed the world.

    I was 1 of 5 people who became GUIDES for the first time in 1987-96 at AOL
    … I helped invent the phrase TOS – Terms of Service, and I Invented SPAM as well starting a software business in the early 1990s. A few years later after AOL bought Time Warner I was one of their 3 Top Sales People selling Telephone Ads for the Internet. — I was there before there was an AOL when Quantum was doing work for Apple-link where the author of AOL software was invented.

    I grew up with Commodore 64. Now many people do not know this, but Commodore 64 had online games too! Yeah, if you had modem, you could go online with your commodore 64 and play some really slow MUDs with your friends, or send e-messages to other people. Great times.
    There was no email back then, mind! No. If you wanted to send e-message, you had to send it directly to the other computer via its modem address!!!

    I don't know how you can make a history of the internet video and not mention the man who created it – Tim Berners-Lee.
