Seven years older than you then because I was 19 in 2000. Still though, I had access to the Internet in high school. Around my junior year (age 16), we had a computer teacher who insisted on teaching us about the Internet. At the time, I thought it was lame and didn’t want to do it. My, how time has changed that opinion. BlackPlanet brought me nothing but grief and terrible ex-boyfriends. MySpace was cool until folks got sensitive about Top 8s. I have no idea what Sconex is, but I’ll look it up afterward.
