About a month before I officially started the tymshft blog, I posted a series of “empo-tymshft” posts in my Empoprise-BI business blog about Usenet. This transitioned into a series of posts on the World Wide Web (which was initially announced on Usenet). I’m not going to repost the entire series in the new blog – not now, anyway – but I would like to link to the series, for those who have an interest in Usenet or the World Wide Web.
The series, which began on January 2, 2012 and included the “empo-tymshft” label, included the following posts:
- Searching for Usenet knights of yore – Computer doctor John Grubor
- A little more on Usenet
- Another perspective on Usenet
- May 20, 2010 – one possible date for the end of Usenet
- And if you want Usenet today…
- One more Usenet post of note
- The solution to “Losing information at CERN” – how about Mesh?
- A 26 site World Wide Web
- From CERN to NCSA – and a major development
- Al Gore’s initiative
