👴 OK kids...

Before #Mastodon, before #socialMedia, before the #Web, we had the #BBS.

If you wanna learn from those who came before, here's a comprehensive 5-hour #documentary about bulletin board systems. 🤓

(Of course, given the world back then it's mostly 5 hours of old white guys. So it goes!)



@downey You forgot IRC in your timeline. Been using it for 33 years and not ready to drop it.

@calchan Good point. IRC was next to come along after BBS for me....

@downey @calchan yeah, BBS and IRC were the thing. I still use IRC sometimes and I regret having dropped it for a long while.
