Started using internet around 97-98 (7-8 years old) but it was mostly just educational stuff and some games at that age
We got our first broadband connection in 2003 and I regularly started browsing 4chan in 2006, when I was 16. The first 4chan meme I remember is Zinedine Zidane. I wonder how much differently life would have turned out if I spent every hour I wasted on 4chan over the last decade doing something to better myself. Oh well, fuck it.
Started with Internet in 99/2000 nick.com, cartoonnetwork.com, neopets, funny junk, Harry Potter, and googling video game girls for porn. Found 4chan.org in 2004 when I was already on MySpace and reading webcomics and learning about memes from ytmnd and wow off topic forums
when I was 6 in 1996 I saw some TV show that had a ferret on it, and I'd never seen one before and I wanted to know if it was a real animal or some sort of puppet or something, and I remembered we just got the internet, so I literally typed in ferret.com into the url bar because I dont think there were search engines yet and I got taken to some old ladies site on how to look after your ferret and I was like oh, it is real, the internet is really useful, and kept using it like that
I got really into spending all day on the internet in 2003 when I found IGN's boards to shitpost about video games all day on and I found 4chan in spring of 2005 when people started talking about about it as a source of all the latest hot internet fads, I remember people going apeshit about april fursday, and I've been stuck on this shithole for over a decade
>>25839014 I first browsed it on 1999, but didn't have internet in my house until 2005. I regularly used it on friends and relatives houses and cybercafes.
Became a 4chan regular in early 2006. >tfw still stuck here
Can confirm internet was better. Normies and corporations ruined it.
It was like being an John Smith and Pocahontas in the New World until it is fully annexed by the colonial normies. Like browsing and discovering weird things, with no PC filter, etc and now everything is jewgle, goybook, jewtube, and jewkipedia. You tried random urls and found bizarre sites and stuff. It had a 'mysterious' vibe, like today deepweb.
>>25841001 Yup, Internet was more interesting back then. when you were browsing through random sites on Angelfire, Geocities, Tripod etc. Good old times when you could actually get malware from watching porn.
>>25841128 Back in the day if you had internet access you were either wealthy and/or tech inclined. Now every 13-year-old girl and nigger have the internet in their pockets so the demographic of users is just a mirror of real life.
>>25839014 Let's see. Started in 2004 when we got a computer. Dicked around internet forums, like this anime one, and this Neopets one, and this one for a free version of Invision Power Boards (there was a mod there who was either Maddox or really really really liked him), then found Gaia Online. I found 4chan around 2007 or so. I remember there was no /r9k/, and 9000 get was Vegeta. Back then "redditfags" were "gaiafags", which became "diggfags", furry threads were only done on Fridays, Caturday and Lithursday were things, and there was this guy who would post bottles of his semen the day after Christmas.
