Yes, I believe myself to be a "netizen." I began my journey into the
Internet in January of 1992 at Purdue
University, through this *thing* called a
haven , where I established myself as Skeeter (after the Muppet
Babies' character). I met some people from the
Colorado School of Mines back then, and a bunch of us used to roadtrip there seasonally. Soon
after the roadtrips, when Skeeter's reputation became "less than
respectable," I slipped into the persona of Pink Kitten, and hid in a
channel from most everyone. The havens went through a phase of being on
worldwide chat room lists, and I frequented them less and less. My
roommate at the time, Mystikite, lured me to
Delusions MUCK, where he created a room and home for me in his castle. Although I still go there
once in a while, I have returned to my original haunts, now that the
membership of anonymous users has declined. I went back to being called
Skeeter, and nowadays I can be found on the
Anti-Haven (very oldbie-elitist),
Tsunami's Hotel California (with my very close friends), and Kazi's Illusions
(which still acts as a big chat room meeting point for some reason). I use
GAIM to talk with old friends and
co-workers when I get the chance, but find it less personal than the
havens ever were.
