BBS nostalgia

Do you remember BBS’s? Bulletin boards? PCBoard? Pirates with attitude? Fidonet? Modems?

Way before the internet I ran a multinode BBS network called INTERZONE here in Melbourne. It was fun. At that time around early 90’s I quit making music and I got into hacking. It wasn’t that hard to get into most corporate databases back then and be a ghost in the machine.. The BBS became my art back then and I met some great people doing it..

Anyway, a documentary on the BBS era has been made.. check it out. It’s in 8 parts and goes for hours but I enjoyed it!
