Two-Way-Net-Communications, Synchronous-and-Asynchronous

(around 1994-1997 etc.)

I used a number of these below; we set up and modified our own MOO,
did the same with an LPMUD and a number of talkers, used Ytalk,
PowWow, CuSeeMe, ThePalace, experimented with a lot of these, made
work with IRC, newsgroups, etc. This is an old chart I compiled; it
runs ragged here, but that's ok. It amazes me now how much can be,
was done, with ascii. I remember being on a BBS in England,
fascinated by FidoNet, even fascinated by alternative print, Mike
Gunderloy's Factsheet Five, Mondo 2000, early Wired, Phrack, Scream
Baby, etc. But the online applications were fantastic. And I was
teaching Net stuff, using linux from 1995 etc. So below is a chart
I assembled somewhere sometime around that. Again, it will come
through messed up, but you get the idea, and I'm still working in
terminal for almost all of my texts. :-)
