Origins To Cyber1

As you all are surely aware, NovaNET finally took the big sleep last night. It was a sad sight, and I'm sorry to see it go.

In February of 1981, I wrote my first note with the title "trvth" in =pad.  I was appleman / chanute at the time. Over the years, with breaks both short and long, I've posted more than 4700 notes with that title, in =pad. The most recent 2300 have been reposted, with accompanying images, at trvth.org

Two years ago, an area high school (Atwood-Hammond) was demolished after the school merged with Arthur-Lovington. The crowd that came to watch that demolition had a nostalgia that I felt again last night, when the room (=pad) was filled with veterans of 30 or more years of PLATO/NovaNET.
