"In those days, everything that we now think of as being part of
the Web, was only available in far smaller, text-based portions on
online services like AOL, BIX, CompuServe, Delphi, GEnie, and
Prodigy. Today, only AOL remains in a form that any time-traveling
user from 1992 would recognize.
"I liked all these services. Well almost all, it was never easy
to warm up to Prodigy with its slower than slow speeds even by
1200-baud bound standards and its clunky interface. But, of all
them, I liked CompuServe the best."
