    Before the Net I ran a market stall, tried MLM, had a Games BB and went to the pub (a lot).
    But now I can spend a Saturday night playing with CSS and Mambo. :)

    I'd lack my business, and my medical transcription job would be done very differently... actually, I probably would have gone into tech writing instead.

    I'd probably still be writting stupid dBase and Clipper code on a 386 somewhere in a very small smokefilled windowless room making way to little money.

    I'd still be doing what I'm doing. The Internet is just a piece of my marketing plan.

    I'd still be a social worker, in grad school to be a mental health counselor. BUT, i would not have met my husband, so i'm quite thankful for the internet :)

    (not so thankful for his current snoring lol)

    I'd probably still be running a huge dial up BBS, was up to 8 nodes when the internet really went public with some decent content, had to offer 'doors' to get folks out to the 'net. Sure don't miss the phone bills doing the FidoNet transfers thats for sure. As far as steady income, probably still doing PC repair instead of my coushy Network Engineer/Sys Admin salary paying job.

    What is this "internet" that you speak of?!
    ;)

    Seriously though, I think I would be in jail from an incident that involved losing my mind while sitting in rush hour traffic and ramming people with my car...

    Have I mentioned how much I love working from home?! :D
