What’s your ICQ number?

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 03, 1999

New poll: I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of days now and the mention on evhead of people auctioning off low ICQ numbers on eBay prompted me to wonder:

In which of the following ranges does your ICQ number lie?
1,001 to 100,000
100,001 to 300,000
300,001 to 1,000,000
1,000,001 to 5,000,000
5,000,001 to 10,000,000
10,000,001 to 20,000,000
20,000,001 to 30,000,000
30,000,001 to 40,000,000
I don’t use ICQ.

My ICQ number is in the 20-30 million range…I got in late in the game and never use the damn thing anyway. Oddly enough, my dad, who is not exactly an early adopter of new Internet technology, has the lowest number of anyone I know at just over 650,000.

The lowest number I could find on the system was 10,002, used by a “Sandman” with an icq.com email address. One of the founders of the company, I would suppose.
