Have you all seen it?
If not, I HIGHLY reccomend it. Jason Scott did a great job making the film, going into depth and covering a great deal of the story of the rise and fall of BBS'es. I was a youngster when the BBS was in it's prime, and only got a PC in 1994 (starting from scratch and learning as I went, back then the best I could do was unzip/zip a file and add a line or two to the AUTOEXEC.bat to make a game work). But I do remember an older friend talking about BBS'es. Needless to say, I was an internet child (I got wired in early '95 through AOL) so this documentary still made a lot of sense to me. I grew up not too far (chronologically) from what is being discussed, and the film not only filled in a lot of blanks but it's great fun to watch as well. No doubt you older geeks will understand a lot more, or may even have ran BBS'es. Either way if you haven't seen it WATCH IT. I don't know where you'll get it...
If you have already seen it, what did you think of it? 🤣
