SGVLUG are excited to have Jason Scott, the notorious internet and pre-internet archivist and director of BBS “The Documentary” as our guest speaker for this month.
TEXTFILES.COM was created in 1998 to celebrate the long-gone era of the BBS, and for over 20 years has provided that service to generations of Internet users. But TEXTFILES.COM is, itself, a relic, now outside the realm of what the Internet is in the present day. Founder Jason Scott walks over his history before, during, and not quite after the era of TEXTFILES.COM as a library and archive.
Jason Scott is the Free-Range Archivist at the Internet Archive and an occasional documentary filmmaker and podcaster.
