Did you PLINK?

I recently found a refuge of OLD cyber folks ... back in the years 1984-1991 there was an online service that I was on, based in the Chicago area, called American People/Link, or "PLINK" for short. This was pretty much my entree into the Internet (although, to tell you the truth, I don't know how I found them, but it must have been via some folks on Compuserve ... back in the days of 300baud and $10/hour!). Somehow, a couple of months ago, I stumbled onto which has assorted memorabilia (including the guest list from the '86 NYC "Mega-Party" on which I appear) and a link out to the current Yahoo Group ("plinkers") for folks who'd been on PLINK.

Anyway, I thought I'd post this up here (yeah, and added "American_People/Link" to my interests), to see if any other "old Plinkers" might be reading my journal. Needless to say, 12 years after the demise of PLINK, it's been a bit of a challenge tracking down old friends ... so we're all trying what we can to unearth them!
