I have been jeffj/at/panix/dot/com since 1991.
I know the fellow with a slightly lower UID but he's not a VCF member.

Before that, my emails were via my employer,
but as a consultant I quickly realized the merit of an email
that I could keep independent of my employer or client.
I had email via Genie, Delphi, Prodigy but never Compuserve or AOL.

Before it was PANIX, there was Big Electric Cat.
A friend used that to access USENET before the Internet,
back when most systems were "walled gardens".
