You Got Mail.
Remember how these three little words changed our lives? It was such a revolutionary idea that you could get mail in an instant! You couldn’t be there all the time, but this thing called the internet opened up a whole new world. They even made a movie called You’ve Got Mail with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. I’m dating myself, but man were those days awesome.
Chris Hardwick’s from the Nerdist site just released an awesome video on YouTube of their earliest internet memories. Since its throwback Thursday what better way to celebrate then to share this video with you.
My Earliest Internet Memory
My earliest internet memory was getting a free American Online CD with 500 hours of free internet. WHAAAAT! You’d wait, and wait, and wait to what seemed like 10 minutes hearing that ‘dial-up’ sound. Then you’d get connected and the computer would tell you, “You Got Mail”. Holy Cow was that the most exciting thing ever! My first screen name was ucsbsurfergirl.
