Oh yes, the old internet. Thanks for the tip @skisher321.

Here’s “my” old internet:

- 1995: AOL, I am 12.
- 1996: ICQ, first website, teach myself HTML
- 2001: Makeout Club (< page 30)
- 2002: LiveJournal (March), Blogger (October)
- 2003: Friendster (March), MySpace (October) & Dodgeball (?)
- 2004: Facebook (May)
- 2005: OK Cupid
- 2006: Yelp (October)
- 2007: Twitter (May)
- 2008: Tumblr (March)

Yeah, I’ve pretty much been a social network slut since 1995.
