👴 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 I was too young for the hayday of #BBS but my brother once pretended to be a woman so he could seduce the sysop of a BBS into giving him access to the file sharing area so he could spend a week downloading Pagemaker on like 30 floppys. That's nostalgia for ya! ⌨️

@downey I worked for years using PageMaker both before and after the acquisition by Adobe. What a blast indeed. @stemid
