    Last week, Daryl Stout sent me an article he thought a number of us would
    enjoy regarding "Social Media's Dial-Up Ancestor", the bbs :)
    
    In looking for more articles that discussed Fidonet in
    particular, I found one published in 2016 in "The Atlantic", a
    well known journal here in the United States.  "The Atlantic"
    periodical was named Magazine of the Year by the American
    Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) in 2016... and one of their
    reporters interviewed some of our members last year :)
    
    I hope you take the time to follow the link to read the whole
    article.

    The Hypnotist at a Senior Home
    
    It was entertainment night at the senior citizens' center.
    
    After the community sing along led by Alice at the piano, it
    was time for the star of the show - Claude the Hypnotist!
    
    Claude explained that he was going to put the whole audience
    into a trance.
    
    "Yes, each and every one of you and all at the same time." said
    Claude.
    
    The excited chatter dropped to silence as Claude carefully
    withdrew from his waistcoat pocket; a beautiful antique gold
    pocket watch and chain.
    
    "I want you to keep your eyes on this watch" said Claude,
    holding the watch high for all to see.
    
    "It is a very special and valuable watch that has been in my
    family for six generations" said Claude.
    
    He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly
    chanting "Watch the watch --- Watch the watch --- Watch the
    watch"
    
    The audience became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and
    forth.
    
    The lights were twinkling as they were reflected from its
    gleaming surfaces.
    
    A hundred and fifty pairs of eyes followed the movements of the
    gently swaying watch.
    
    They were hypnotized.  And then, suddenly, the chain broke!!!
    
    The beautiful watch fell to the stage and burst apart on
    impact.
    
         "SHIT" said Claude.
    
    It took them three days to clean the Senior Citizens' Center and
    Claude was never invited there again.

    Note from the Editor:
      In tracking more stories about our hobby, I came upon this
    article published last year in "The Atlantic Magazine".  
    Enjoy :)
    
    The Lost Civilization of Dial-Up Bulletin Board Systems
    
    [A former systems operator logs back in to the original
    computer-based social network.]
    By Benj Edwards
    
    
    I have a vivid, recurring dream. I climb the stairs in my
    parents' house to see my old bedroom.  In the back corner, I
    hear a faint humming.
    
    It's my old computer, still running my 1990s-era bulletin board
    system (BBS, for short), "The Cave." I thought I had shut it
    down ages ago, but it’s been chugging away this whole time
    without me realizing it—people continued calling my BBS to play
    games, post messages, and upload files.  To my astonishment, it
    never shut down after all.
    
    BBSes once numbered in the tens of thousands in North America.
    These mostly text-based, hobbyist-run services played a huge
    part in the online landscape of the 1980s and '90s.  Anyone with
    a modem and a home computer could dial-in, often for free, and
    interact with other callers in their area code.
    
    Then the internet came along in the mid-1990s. Like a comet to
    the dinosaurs, it upended the natural order of things and wiped
    BBSes out.  My system was one of the casualties, a victim of the
    desire to devote all my online time to the internet.  The same
    scenario repeated itself on thousands of computers across the
    country until, one by one, the brightest lights of the BBS world
    blinked out of existence.
    
    * * *
    
    In 1991, my dad brought home a small black plastic box from
    work.  He was an electronics engineer and regularly swapped
    state-of-the-art tech with his coworkers.
    
    "This is a modem," my dad said. "You can connect to other
    computers over the telephone with it."
    
    At the time, dad didn’t mean the internet, which we’d never
    heard of (it was mostly used by universities and government
    institutions at the time).  No, he was referring to BBSes.
    
    The first BBS came to life in 1978 during a particularly bad
    Chicago blizzard.  Its inventors, Ward Christensen and Randy
    Suess, wanted a way to keep up with their computer club without
    having to gather together in person.  So they figured out a way
    to do it with computers.

    Read the whole article at the link below.  You'll see quotes
    from current Fido people such as Mike Luthor and Mike Powell :)
    The author of this article contacted them after visiting their
    bbs systems.

    More Information about the FidoGazette:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor.  
    
    If you have an idea for a column or a series of articles, please
    contact me :)
    
    Subscriptions: Mailing-List subscriptions via
          http://www.filegate.net/sub.html
    
    Or you can always link into your uplink and use Tick or a tick
    compatible program.
    
    Where to Send Your Articles
    
    Unlike most editors, I surely do not  mind running my mouth when
    there is a sparsity of articles for the 'zine.  I'd MUCH rather
    you sent in material...  lacking that, I will fill these issues
    with my meanderings and thoughts and hopefully we will grow into
    something of consequence here :) Write an article!
    
    If you WOULD like to submit an article, feel free to drop your
    article off at:
    
     Email attach to address: janis @ filegate.net
     
     Fidonet attach: 
      Janis Kracht at 1:261/38 
      Modem: 607-200-4076
      Binkp: 1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555 
      telnet mailer: filegate.net
    
    If you are using routed Fidonet mail, don't send articles as
    routed attaches.  They may fail somewhere along the path before
    getting here.  Send them instead in the body of your routed
    netmail to janis@filegate.net
       
    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one or your email address and send it along!
    
    Don't worry about the format, I can take anything you send me
    and mutilate it further as you can see above.  Linux is nice
    that way (g).  Spell checking your own work will help though
    (something I'm typically guilty of (g)).
