online chat with strangers
When I was 12 and I first discovered the internet I was amazed at how easily I could chat with a kid my age in LA, Cape Town or Sydney in an instant. The fact that I could switch on my PC and 'meet' people on the other side of the world at any time of the day or night was almost magical. But inevitably after a little while the novelty of making chit-chat with somebody else simply because they were really far away wore a bit thin. I didn't really have much in common with them and sometimes they were just plain strange.
So I moved onto looking up things I was actually interested in, namely music and horses. Some of my favourite bands had chat-rooms of online chat with strangers their own or really active fan-sites so this meant I could 'hang' with people I had something in common with, which was a real novelty because if I mentioned Boyz to Men or showjumping to my older brothers one more time I risked serious bodily harm.
Initially the internet was all about getting Global, reaching bigger, wider, further than ever before. In the nineties chat-rooms were huge, we could reach as far as we could imagine in no time! My older brothers never got too excited about chat-rooms but when they discovered they could play Street Fighter or Quake against a kid in Tokyo or a grown-up in San Diego, I honestly think the earth stopped moving for several seconds
