Pre-Internet nostalgic ride!
18 June 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a very comprehensive, and almost complete history said by the guys who did it in the BBS Era.

If you have been in at least one BBS and know what that culture is, please purchase this documentary and save it in you personal locker to cherish forever.

This documentary is simply awesome in understanding the importance and sweetness of good old Pre-Internet personal communications of humans.

For other Nineties+ kids you should still see this to learn how simple, personal, and non-chaotic, Adventures and fun BBS communities where before the Internet.

A Must have for BBS era nerds.
