1. What was the first Internet site you remember joining?
Lintilla. It was a mulit user chat site. I'm still friends with some people I met on it (in the mid 90s.)

2. What was the last Internet site you joined?
One of Coursera's competitors, which tells you the impression it made.

3. Are you Mac, Window or something else?
Windows. I'm not cool enough for a mac.

4. What is the one thing you wish you could easily do with your computer?
Keep track of my stuff. It helps, but I still misplace things.

5. Are you happier with the all the advances that have been made in the last ten years or do you wish for an earlier, less technology-based time?

So far, I'm happy with the advances. I wish the screen on my phone was bigger.

1. What was the first Internet site you remember joining?

Hahaha oh man, I don't know. I posted on a few MST3K and George Gershwin fan forums in like, middle school, but you didn't need to register. The first I ever joined may have been Alleria—oh sorry, Aelyria. (Apparently Alleria is now an unrelated WoW thing? Weird.)


2. What was the last Internet site you joined?

(Wrath of) Khan Academy. Learning things!


3. Are you Mac, Window or something else?

My Lubuntu, let me show you it.


4. What is the one thing you wish you could easily do with your computer?

Total cybernetic mental interface. I eagerly await the day we can use our thoughts to control our computers. I also eagerly await the day I can just "ctrl-F" or "whereis $whatever" in real life.


5. Are you happier with the all the advances that have been made in the last ten years or do you wish for an earlier, less technology-based time?

I love my tech.

1) The Runrig message board (Scottish Rock band)
2) Instagram
3) Windows
4) I'll get back to this later.
5) Oh hell no. People who glorify/romanticize the "simpler" life of the past, piss me off to no end. I wish we would advance faster (and maybe we could, if so many people weren't opposed to technology and progress).
