1978 – The first computer bulletin board system is created (CBBS in Chicago).



I remember dialing up KBBS back in the early 90s...


Pinning Hopes on Computer Bulletin Boards : People are starting home businesses by offering services that help hi-tech aficionados reach the information superhighway.

BY MICHAEL BROADHURSTAUG. 2, 1994 12 AM PT

    Thousands of Southern Californians have discovered a route to the information superhighway through a spare bedroom in Greg Gooden’s Van Nuys home.

    As many as 60 people convene there at once. Some socialize or play games, others use a library, some pick up their mail. Most stay for hours and many linger far past midnight.

    Gooden doesn’t actually see these people. Instead that visitor traffic communicates over computers and through his own local computer bulletin board company called The Annex. “You can get almost any kind of information you need straight through your computer,” Gooden said. “It’s like going to the library without leaving the house.”

    Good old Myron.  He was fun.  My other good take away from those days was Alvino Rey with the King Sisters Family.  Pedal steel heaven that I just built on to loving a good sloppy, noodly slide guitar.  Rey is like the grandfather or something of part of Arcade Fire, IIRC.


    Cool. Gotta look that up. Love pedal steel and noodley guitars.
    The only other time I heard records in class besides Spanish was a Humanities course I think when I was a junior in H.S. We had to do a thematic presentation with choice of props so for mine I brought my portable stereo record player and JT Aqualung and played the song, Wind Up. LOL
    I don't remember my speaking parts but I laugh now thinking about the audacity of nonsensical 16-17 year old meatheads. My sweet Mother got me through school somehow. lol.

    Hi-five if your 3rd grade teacher played Beatles records for the class. 
    Yes, Lawrence Welk was rough at that age for me but I loved Myron Floren.
