12 years of intenet in the Philippines and a lot has changed since then…
Might first encounter with the internet was in my freshmen years in Ateneo. Students are issued their own university emails in the form of [email protected] We use pine to access our emails and we were given computer cards worth around 50 hours of internet use in the Faura computer labs.
Google wasn’t born yet so I guess I was more familiar with the likes of Yahoo & MSN. Hence my oldest existing email was from Yahoo and I started to using emails to reach my high school friends.
In the following years, fewer and fewer mails arrive in the mail box and most of the birthday greetings I get are thru my email already. I thought that was the end of the pen and paper.
