Remember 'Archie'?

Today I received an email from stumpedia with an invitation to read a link about

Ten Great Moments In Internet History

So I did! And I am happy I did. The very first search engine was called Archie search engine and it was hosted and McGill University in 1990. I remember using Archie when it first came out and how amazed and excited I was when you could actually search for information with it.
The article brought back memories about six degrees.... one of the first successful networking sites on the internet - I made all sorts of friends on that site... what fun it was! We have come a long way since those early days on the internet! Now we into high speed and beginning to take the internet for granted thinking that is a 'normal' way of life.

In my life I have come from the days of using a telephone was like a miracle - we had to tell the operator the number we were calling and she would plug the right wires so we could talk to the person. All the phones were on a 'party line' with multiple people using your same telephone line. Now you can email instantly to anywhere in the world and when we have a glitch in our internet connection for a few minutes - and we are offline - we are often upset. Funny how we get use to all this high tech - and yet it is less than 20 years to when 'Archie' first appeared.

Now we have an exploding, expanding Squidoo and it is equally as exciting to me as Archie was. Why? Because now I can build my own web pages in an easy simple way in order to share my interests and passions and make a little coin while having fun. All in all I have a great productive time on the internet because of squidoo and all the hard working lensmasters that come up with amazing tools like and the new squiddit (for experienced lensmasters only) that will help us grow and expand our traffic.

Happy Squidooing everyone!
