I got my first bitnet address in 1988, and I built my first gopher in 1992. In 1993, I convinced the system administrator in the Department of Environmental Sciences at UVa to install a webserver, and I developed my first web page shortly thereafter. I've maintained a personal web presence at julen.net since 1996 that has attracted attention from around the world. The origins of the Ancient World Web, the web's first index to all things Ancient, and Charlottesville On-line, an index to all resources dealing with my hometown, date back to this time.
