How did I get started on the web?

I first saw the internet in 1988 and wrote about it in 1991.

In December 1993, as a freshman in college, I was inspired to explore web by this article by John Markoff,

then these things happened to me as I started publishing on the web in January 1994.


early 1994 version of my web page
oldest bio, post-wired bio, more current bio
after my site grew from just pure links to more self-awareness, after wired, i developed my own masthead and later developed a more elaborate "about this site" section
early comments and visitors.

when i first started on the web, i wrote a ton of link reviews. here are some defunct links that i wrote about.

this was my primary table of contents back then:
