I still have all of my hard-copies of Forever Net.  The zine that was
printed from the FK fic-LIST, before the internet became a/the common
hangout for fan groups.

I had recently mentioned to a friend in BBC Sherlock fandom that we were
likely the beginning of what has grown (exploded?) into AO3.


Always believe in God, because there are some questions even Google can't answer.

FWIW, I have email from STARFLEET (the STAR TREK fan org I've been part
of since 1985) dating back to 1995 in Eudora's mailbox format, and text
files going back further. Our original list was started by Gordon Goldberg
on Panix...

I even found a reference to this list being the first fandom online mailing
list in an essay entitled A Brief History of Media Fandom by Francesca Coppa
in a book edited by Kristina Busse called Fan Fiction and Fan Communities in
the Age of the Internet: New Essays (pub 2014). I'm not sure I'd make that
claim personally. The only one I'm sure of personally is that I indeed created
the first She-Ra Princess of Power website back in the 90s and it's still up
on its original URL and hasn't been edited since 1996 in all of its ugly
handwritten HTML glory. ;)

Last Call for Christmas Card Exchange 2019!

I have sent the preliminary list out to those who have indicated that they
would like to participate along with past participants who may have dropped
off the list.


*Greets All!*

It is quickly becoming that time of year again and to get the yule log
rolling as it were, I figured I'd send out a note for those interested in
exchanging Christmas cards again this year (that is unless someone else has
and I missed the note).

Here is how it works:


If you *HAVE already participated* in the past year or two and your address
or anything else requested below has *not* changed, I will use the same
list as last year *unless **you prefer NOT to participate* - if so please
also feel free to send me a request to remove your information as well.


If you are unsure or simply want to send info in case something was amiss
or could be please do the following:

Send ME and NOT THE LIST  (kiltedswinebbq@g.......) the following
information (
*PLEASE DO NOT SEND TO THIS LIST*) and then I will compile a list of
participants and
send the list to all participants starting on Dec. 1st and updates going
through Dec. 20th to give the procrastinators proper oops time.

Sending the info is permission to put you on the card list.

I will send you a confirmation email when I receive your info. When you get
the list, you send cards to as many participants as you can.

Everyone receives lots of cards for the holidays!

*If you would like to participate, remember* **DO NOT send to the list***,
send me *(kiltedswinebbq@g.......):

Your real name
Your snail mail address
Your preferred email address
Any special instructions (such as "no confetti")
The holidays you celebrate as this time of the year (Christian Christmas,
secular Christmas, Kwanzaa, etc.)
Your website or blog information if you have one and want it listed

Happy anniversary to us all! I think I joined the day after the list was
established. I'd heard about it on the old Vampyres@g....... and signed up at
once. The list has been a joy to administer.
