I haven't seen any conversation building up to this anniversary anywhere and I'm kind of surprised.

This upcoming November will mark the 30th anniversary of the opening of the very first commercial Internet service provider offering dial-up access to the general public.

That ISP is The World, and they still offer dial-up connections.



@djsundog they have dialup numbers in my town! I’m inclined to call them, just for the nostalgia of hearing the handshake noise.

I’m friends with the brother of the founder of panix , for whatever that’s worth in nerd points.
