Back in 1994 I had an email address at BME (Budapest Institute of Technology). I mean physically I went there to have my emails. It took like two hours commuting :)
Most of the people, even in the US asked those days in 1994: What is Internet anyway?
My Internet History
As seen on internetworldstats.com I was one of the first 15 million users of Internet, with starting back in 1994. Though .hu already existed since 1991.
When I started using Internet in 1994, it was already 25 years old. So its 45 years old now, only two years older than me.
Anyway I was with being one of the first 15 million members a very very early adapter. And if these details are correct, the Generation X is a digital nomad too.
My friends didn't really get what I do. But my father did. He worked at that time at the Hungarian National TV and he wanted as early as 1997 a TV show on Internet. He never had one.
Social Media History
From 2002 I was an active social media user of the late WiW.hu, a quite early local platform. In 2014 they shut down.
Years passed, and on October 23, 2007, Agnes Huvos invited me to Linkedin. I can not thank it enough to Agnes.
I have to thank to my sweet wife too.
Took me 4 years to become a specialist, a Linkedin Expert, but now I am. Thanks to many great people. First of all Agnes Huvos for inviting me, then comes my guru, Wayne Breitbarth, and his book, I learned so much from, the Power Formula for Linkedin. My all time favourite Linkedin book. I need to thank Bert Verdonck and his (with Jan Vermeiren) book, the How to Really Use Linkedin and Wallace Jackson for all those great answers.
And thanks to all of you asking great questions. Keep on asking me.
