First contact with the Internet

My first contact with the Internet was around 1988.  The most people associat internet with WWW but the WWW service came up around 1993.  In 1988 E-Mail service was brand new and it was the first of two services I used. The second service I used was FTP (file transfer protocol). FTP exists since 1971. The final version of ftp was made in 1985 and itś the version we still use today. I built my  first own homepage in 1994 and it was first time I was listed in a search engine. It was a time you had nearly no viruses and no spam. The fastest speed on your private  Internet connection was 9600 to 14400 baud.
