In college I used BITNET and another one, later, called CSNET IIRC. This was sometime between '85 and '89 (my stint of undergrad). Both of these allowed me to send emails to my brother-in-law at UT Austin and later Yale where he did his post-doc. I am pretty sure one of them (CSNET?) allowed remote sessions, not just mail. I think these (or maybe just csnet) had a connection out to the internet. Then I remember something called "Internet In a Box" anyone remember that? Pre-netscape. Had mosaic, gopher, archie clients which I played with.

Does anyone remember their first access to real internet?
I mean my first access was in CUNY at school, but after that I got a slip account ar Dorsai. I had an Amiga 500 around this time
