Not quite older than the internet.

darksumomo's post today reminds me that I've been on the internet for over 30 years, thanks to digex who got me an e-mail account at MIT so I could read and comment on the ARMS-D mailing list back in 1978. Maybe even 1977. Needless to say, I am not now, nor have I ever been, a student at MIT. I didn't even bother applying there, since I knew my math skills stunk on ice and I didn't realize they also had a liberal arts program. Who knew? I thought all those people went to Harvard or BC. Anyway, yeah - 31 years on the Internet. I'm sure there's people who have been on it longer, but it's something else I can shake my cane and yell at the kids about. :)

If you had been in MIT's liberal arts program, then you might have been a student of Noam Chompsky's. Then you'd really be able to bitch about leftist professors. He's too far out even for me.

Yeahhhh...it was hard enough for me to shut up and do the work to pass the Liberation Theology course at Metro State. On the other hand, I understand Chomsky actually has his head screwed on pretty straight when it comes to his linguistics, so idk...
