Ten years ago I was already buying books from Amazon using my first credit card, I was using Opera as my browser, my primary email address was (when it was free), I accessed my Yahoo email account via Pop3 (when it was free), I was already using Google as my default search engine (though I was probably also using Altavista too), I had a website, I was still using a dial up service to go online, I joined dozens of e-groups mailing lists, usenet, irc, and online forums to debate other people, and I was using Napster and Gnutella to download music.

I worked for an Ebay offshoot then . If I remember correctly, right before I started, we took Paypal. Most people called in with credit card numbers during my time.
