    Y.

    Every generation has its cool points, of course, but I think it's cool that my generation is the one that grew up without the internet/computers (well, older gen Y anyway) but then they started to get important somewhere around middle-high school and by college they were absolutely essential. I still think it's weird that people were born after the internet.

    Well, our family did have a computer growing up. It had DOS and played some sweet arcade-style games from floppies, and printed things on that all-connected paper.

    I'm not the greatest for memories-in-time, I know I create a lot of anachronistic memories, but I distinctly remember trying to make a case to get the internet while I was in junior high. We were late enough to the game that we went straight for cable rather than dial-up.

    It will let me be a better student, and you don't have to keep buying Encarta CD-ROMs because it's all available on the internet!

    oh man when we first got internet my brother would tie up the phone line for hours chatting on icq I didn't really get into the internet until we had broadband, which was when I was around 12 or 13. dial up was too slow, I could never use dial up. I remember someone talking about how crazy it was that we use to use dial-up. Yeah I didn't have the patience for it even in 98. we had a home network pre-internet and my brother and I would play doom and two different computers in the house. If you looked at the closet in my dad's office and a room off the garage you will find old junk computers ham radio equipement etc(my dad's an engineer, and you know how they are when it comes to old electronics, I think my mom got fed up with them and threw a few of them out when he was out of town)

    on cellphones, I wasn't allowed to have one until I started driving, my parents rational was that a cell phone is only useful in the case of car trouble. The problem was when I was 14 i'd go to the mall with friends and they wouldn't have cell phones and the pay phones were already being begun to be taken out so it was frustrating to run around trying to find a phone to call my mom to come pick me up or ask if i could stay longer (I lived 20 minutes away from the mall)
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    GenY, Second.

    Interesting that the G.I. generation is supposedly akin to GenY/Millennials. It makes me feel great!
