Hey Meat…… great name. Brows around. I think there was a larger crowd that just left. Hopefully they’ll go back or we make the crowd bigger ourselves.June 13, 2015 at 1:26 am #1279029

Nice to meet you meat. 😛June 15, 2015 at 3:26 pm #1279024June 16, 2015 at 2:41 am #1279030June 25, 2015 at 1:03 am #1279026
Its nothing but parties, hanging out and BBoards……but less BBoards nowadays, the public ones anyway. Some killer parties being posted on here though.
I just go on public boards cause I was….uhmm…..”told” to do that.
Just in case some of my friends see me outside of underground networks…..SCREW YOU GUYS…..I’m deprived of public boards. 😉
Oh yeah….that whole ‘Social Network’ thing? All those sites past and present? Never started in underground parties, infact they are heavily active at Top40 party “circles”. Outside of direct programmers I knew, they just wanted to figure out how things are, peoples, networks, etc. The only reason why some of us are on here is because we’re addicted to computers.
These sites have and always will be the correct format.
Think about it…..outside of the mind, outer interaction is “social networking”……why would you duplicate exactly what happens to the social interaction process, outside your own mind? Unless someone was trying to figure out the whole process. Yes some people are that lonely.
DAY 1 of the social network project was NOT a success. Call it a reverse experiment if you like.June 25, 2015 at 9:40 am #1279022General LightingModerator
I agree with the overall ethos of what you are saying; (as apparently I am one of the original “cyberpunk veterans” having first used the Internet in 1991/2 – just before it was officially released in my country!) but am curious as to what the distinction between private and public bulletin boards is.
This is probably because I am British / European; in the 1980s a public bulletin board was what you’d get on viewdata terminals in the library. The Council provided the content and had things like info about schools; buses and trains, when the rubbish (trash) would be collected in your street; you could also use it to search for where books were in the libraries for a region (rather than card indexes).
There were also ones which you could send messages with but the equipment and cost of calling them was way expensive in the UK; in Germany and France the telephone company was still the nationalised PTT and subsidised these services; they did indeed get used for sharing rave info especially in France.
Private bulletin boards (at least for us Europeans) meant those ones where you had to know the correct phone number and login. Forums like this evolved out of these (this site was around a year before Google). Although all of it is on the public internet there is still a difference; we are not interested in harvesting every bit of data about your lifestyle; nor who your friends are and then selling it to the highest bidder like the corporate social networks are doing.
I was thinking just now that the so-called “free resources” on the large networks like youtube; facebook etc have actually disrupted a lot of underground communities in Europe. they’ve made everyone feel entitled to getting anything for near zero effort (including real life friendships and relationships) – and are also extremely quick when anything is controversial to hand over the data straight to feds/law enforcement (or set it out in such a way any donut muncher can mine it without needing a login).July 4, 2015 at 1:21 am #1279027

First of all……Cyberpunk….”If your into that”…….is alot older than 90’s bro. Your no original. If you don’t know you don’t know.
Secondly……having an opinion about a topic is nice and all. But my logic isn’t based on opinions but being there. For someone thats supposed to be technologically advanced…..whats this “Here and There”? Theres only the internet that was started as a military communication project. You’re speaking as if the Orignial (now dead) Computer Industry was what it was…..”World Wide Web”. Objectifying Europe as being seperate doesn’t make sense. The computer industry for real techies was fundamentally NOT AMERICAN. It has always been something else. Obviously being “world wide” means that it had to be established by SOMEONE. It was just known. People that didn’t know anthing are just secondary and more of a consumer than providing a product.
Secondly, its not a matter of whats “underground” or whatever your logic is. SOCIAL NETWORKING IS NOW SOCIAL MEDIA, which means that Social Media became AN INDUSTRY, based on researching pictures, peoples interests and their network of people. Selling information about users. Facebook has customized advertisements specific to the user who logs in. Your advertisements are different than another household, because its based on your interaction. In its earlier stages, it gave a 3rd prespective “top view” of a user and their network of people. It doen’st matter what your into “underground or not”. You missed the whole point. CIRCLES means that if you are not a part of that circle, you will not benefit from whatever motivates that circle. Opinions are CUTE. But if you don’t get specific with NAMES, TIME, LOCATION & EVENT….. GET OFF MY NUTS.
“If you don’t know, you don’t know.”
So yeah…..Social Media. Its about researching what people are into, Macro and micro level. Usually the ones protecting it are the ones that get defensive. Whats the difference though between Social Media and earlier forms of it?
“If you don’t know you don’t know.”
By the way isn’t Media mentioned in the bible?
Regarding private forms of communication…….I cant say.
“Because if you don’t know……..you just don’t know. “
Your either observing an experiment or you ARE an experiment.
