I recent article (I didn’t bookmark it…) mentioned the days of BBS systems prior to the Internet. The article (I think it was on the Forbes website) told how there are still “a few” that still exist. So I went searching and found a site that allows people to “telnet” into the BBS sites…all 400+ of them. I guess that is just “a few”! Some are still dial-up only but most you can access via telnet.
I’ve suggested (in an email) to Alice & Smith that they should incorporate the BBS idea into their “projects”…expecially because if they are going to use “Radio Stations to play ads” and " Chinese Satellites to broadcast coded noises", then setting up and using an old-school BBS is perfectly suited for their “exploitation!” -)
