When Prodigy provided internet access, that was my first time on the net. I believe this was around 1993 or 1994. I also think Prodigy was the first major ISP
, as they provided net access before AOL, Compuserve, or any of the other big brands did. I also used gopher, telnet, ftp, and a few unix based applications. I frequented BBS
systems from 1989 until the Internet was more widely used. I even ran a BBS
during the first Gulf War.
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.
