@sophia In September 1995, the US government allowed commercial firms to manage & monetize the Internet.

1 October 1995, I got my first job as an Internet engineer.

I'd like to say: I'm sorry. I'm really, really sorry.

@sophia Much the same way we'll forgive Charlemagne... eventually.

@mwlucas oh he's definitely getting forgiven before you

@sophia yup. The whole reason I got into technology in the mid-00s was because I wanted to create little apps and games for personal computers.

By the time I finished training, the world wanted "web 2.0", online APIs only certain people are allowed to use, mobile apps you have to pay to learn & develop for and B2B middleware systems that shunt huge volumes of data and messages around.
