This article resonates with me, time to get nostalgic.

I grew up on the 90s internet, MUDs, MOOs, IRC, etc. Anything where I could have real time text based conversations with people.

I was also privileged with an easy way to travel and parents who did not really monitor what I was up to. I went all over the US meeting people I met online.

I met the person who eventfully became my wife on a MUD. She lived on the east coast and I was in the Midwest. Without this network we'd have never met. We've been together for 24 years now.
