From Usenet Big-8 Management Board

ANNOUNCEMENT: AMA on May 28, 2021 with the Usenet Big-8 Management Board

The Usenet Big-8 Management Board is pleased to announce that it will be holding an AMA on Reddit this coming Friday!

We (Jason Evans, Rayner Lucas, and Tristan Miller) administer the original, mainstream discussion hierarchies on Usenet, an online network that was established in 1980, a decade before the World Wide Web.

We recently reconstituted the Board after a three-year dormancy, and have been busy restoring and modernizing its infrastructure, as well as stepping up public outreach efforts to promote Usenet. Drop by to ask us about the past and future of Usenet and the Big 8, about the technical and social challenges currently facing the network, and about why people still converse on Usenet today (and why you should too)!

The AMA thread will be posted in r/IAmA on Friday, May 28 2021 starting at 19:00 UTC. You can check the starting time in your own time zone.
