Main Question or Discussion Point

How old were you (forum members) when you first began discussing math and science on the web?

I'd been out of graduate school for a decade before posting to a math and science forum -that was on the old Compuserve math/science forum, before Compuserve was taken-over by AOL. I wonder how different education would have been if the internet and personal computers existed when I was in high school.

I used to hang out in the math and physics forums of a site for youths (I was probably one of the few spending more time in that section than in the relationship section ...) I guess I was around 18-20 at the beginning and I would not call it a science forum and I quit over 10 years ago. My "real" start was last year at age 34 and to be honest I started on a different forum. I came here around one month later.

Long before it was "the web." Forty years now.
