[guest blogging: Brian Greene] This year the IIA is 10 years old. I joined the IIA as a individual member in Nov 1997 after its May ‘97 start. I immediately became the IIA’s second sys admin to the old Sun Spark 10 in Pearse Street.
In those days the Board was a who’s who of Irish Internet founders, the day to day was run by denise and to put a time line on it this predated Lyn, Frank, Colm, Irene & Fergal.
A lot has happened over the years (and someone must write it all down). So take#1 of guest blogging. What I am going to discuss and I need your help on is, What have been the defining moments in the first 10 years of the IIA and the first 14 years of Irish Web/Net industry.
some I may explore.
