We have many more BBS Sysops and Pioneers to add soon. Some are very difficult to find any information. We don't want them to slide away into oblivion. If you have a recommendation for us to add, please leave a comment.



OVERVIEW OF BBS PIONEERS

There are still a few hundred operating BBS's around the world but they're not quite the same, not since the web took over. The name, BBS, is an acronym for Bulletin Board System and existed for millions of online enthusiasts long before the web began to take over back in 1993.

The web is a much more convenient way to navigate and much cheaper. Unlike the general BBS, the web has a much improved graphical interface and support for tons of other options.

A Bulletin Board required a modem and telephone line. Today you use a WiFi connected to a network or your cellular data allowing access to just about any point on earth. The speed and power of online access has increased more than 8,000,000 times in the last 30 years. 

BEFORE the web, there were Bulletin Board Systems (BBS's) which ruled the online world. This blog is dedicated to the BBS Pioneers who make it all happen.
