This movie takes you on a great journey through the forgotten world of the BBS scene. It's eight episodes each bring you through a different aspect of the BBS story. From the early days of the first BBS to the end days when most BBSs went offline. Interesting stories from users and system operators of BBSs long offline. The stories of the early hacker/phreaker/anarchist/cracker scene are among the most colorful tales to come out of this computer culture. Details of how people got together and started massive networks of BBSs is covered. Including how these systems are still in use today in developing countries, as well as a means to circumvent government lock downs on information exchange. These stories are stories that needed to be told and recorded. The people and places involved are quickly becoming forgotten. Without a documentary like this the history would likely be lost forever.
