I’m amused to find after browsing Google’s new 20 year newsgroup posting archive that my first ever newsgroup postings from 1994 (done via my then tutor’s account) are there. this is the first one, posted about a Nick Cave concert. I can still hear the struggle in my mind as I wondered ‘what the hell is this internet thing and how is it useful to me/who will ever read this/what’s the point etc… I wasn’t the only one, either – an innocent (albeit sarcastic) post of mine sparked off one rather pompous response informing me that I should have used a smiley if I was being anything but completely serious, and then a short debate about expression etiquette. These (post post) later postings also amused me. I seemed to have talked only about music and films. I guess not all that much has changed.
