Thread Name: History of the Digital Tradition
Subject: RE: History of the Digital Tradition
My two cents worth ... we first found the site shortly after we got access to the internet, & spent hours reading the annotations to American Pie, looking up Puff the Magic Dragon, etc., etc. Then the site disappeared! "due to copyright concerns", and I told myself *I should have printed all that stuff when I still could*, & not simply trusted that it would always be out on the web whenever I wanted to look at it. I could figure out, from my bookmarks, when we discovered that it was back on the air again. We have enjoyed watching it grow ever since.

Guess my theme is that there is a "grassroots history" as well as the official version ... facts & figures are interesting, but so is the personal impact on those of us who gather here from time to time.
