Feedback Loop: Earliest internet memories, first tweets and more!


Welcome to Feedback Loop, a weekly roundup of the most interesting discussions happening within the Engadget community. There's so much technology to talk about and so little time to enjoy it, but you have a lot of great ideas and opinions that need to be shared! Join us every Saturday as we highlight some of the most interesting discussions that happened during the past week.

This week, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the world wide web, shared our first tweets, discussed the fashion appeal of wearables and started a March Madness tournament bracket. Head on past the break and join the conversation.

Share your first experience with the world wide web

This week, the world wide web turned 25-years-old! It seems like only yesterday that we put up with the high-pitched squeal of a modem and the ridiculously slow speeds of a 9600-baud connection. Do you remember the first time you tasted internet access? Head over to the forums and share your first experience using the Internet.

What was your first tweet?

Engadget Associate Editor Nicole Lee shared a story about her first years on Twitter. Instead of sharing links and breaking news, people simply posted the more mundane details of their lives. It was a much different place. Kris was inspired to start a discussion in the forums about her own first tweets on Twitter. Check out some of our first (and sometimes embarrassing) posts. And then share yours.

Wearables: Geeky toys or fashion statement?

Wearable technology is all the rage right now, but how well does it mesh with our personal style? Engadget reader sirijo asks some interesting questions about the pricing, usefulness and fashion appeal related to wearables. Tell him what you think.

Join Engadget's NCAA Tournament Bracket

March Madness is almost here! Are you a college hoops fan? Billy Steele put together an Engadget NCAA Tournament bracket pool. If you fancy yourself a baller, head over to the forums after Selection Sunday and make your picks. Good luck!
