By Brandon De Hoyos:

I can still remember the moment I first signed on to AIM as a sixth grade student; the enthusiasm, the excitement, and the possibilities were endless, I thought. IM opened up a whole new window to the world and in as little as a year, I had amassed a wealth of new friends from around the globe. Today, I hope to help get more people connected, sharing and learning...one IM at a time.
