Before the Internet became a public thoroughfare, many people used BBS's to form thriving online communities. Expansive history of computer Bulletin Board Systems commencing from Ward Christensen's original CBBS in 1978 through their obsolescence in the late 1990s. Eight episodes totaling nearly 5 hours, drawn from hundreds of interviews with key figures; topics covered include Fidonet, the ANSI art scene, and the underground hacking/phreaking BBS's. Jason Scott's first documentary, shot entirely on digital.
