Google posted a 20 year list of Usenet milestones. The Internet often seems completely here and now, not so much a device of recorded history as a device of immediate history. Possibly because of this perception, I am fascinated by the dates and events:

I graduated from Art Center in December of 1993. During my last semester, Bruce and I took a Photoshop (2.0) class taught by Lynda Weinman. About that time, I got myself, my parents and Michelle’s parents AOL accounts. I hadn’t seen the web yet. Wired magazine had just started and was still incredibly cool, although none of us knew what half the articles were about. In January of the following year, Michelle and I moved to New York City. In early 1994, Bruce and I made illustration portfolios on floppy disks. (link found on MetaFilter)
