The TEXTFILES.COM BBS Timeline
A Collection of Events and Infamy of BBS History

Welcome to TIMELINE.TEXTFILES.COM.

This site is affiliated with the BBS documentary currently in pre-production. To ensure that the documentary covers as many aspects of the story of the BBS as possible, it is vital that a good solid chunk of history research be done. This site has been put up as an aid to coming up with a good linear timeline of the events of BBSes over the past 25 years.

I am asking anyone associated with BBSes to look over this timeline, let me know about any major events that have occured that I've missed, and generally send in corrections and suggestions. While it will never be truly complete, it can serve as an excellent jumping-off point for more research.
