The info-mac network is no more.
That is a picture of the first computer I ever owned, a Macintosh SE. I cut my teeth on an old PDP10 at Rutgers University -- with the good old ADM 3A and Visual 200 terminals. But the Mac was the first computer I really liked. I liked it so much I got involved in the online community -- I became a moderator of info-mac. Back in those days there was ftp, but not really http. People would drop off software to be put in the archive, I would decide how to classify it, moderate the message digest, and otherwise help run the thing.
I stopped many years ago (though for some reason my name still remains on the moderator page). And have long since left the Mac and moved to Windows. I still remember those days fondly, though.
Adam Engst, a wise-old-man in the Mac world, wrote a nice few paragraphs on its passing and the differences in the Internet then and now in TidBits.
