“On The Media” revisits a BBS “ghost town”

As a journalist, I listen regularly to NPR’s On The Media program. Imagine my surprise and delight when a fellow journalist sent me a link to OTM’s TLDR podcast from yesterday in which one of the program’s producers revisits his old BBS stomping grounds.

The board was M-net, a large chat system that’s still running today — though nothing like it was in its heyday.

Please give this segment a listen, and be sure to let OTM know you appreciate their coverage of this important tech history topic!
