Good rant by Jason Scott on The Quiet Wikideath of BBS History - ascii.textfiles.com. I helped my bit by copying a few BBS doorgame articles from Wikipedia to the BBS wiki. I hope initiatives like Break Into Chat help preserve more history.

I think the big issue with early personal computing history is that storage was expensive back then so older stuff had to be thrown out. Now we all have permalinks and nothing gets thrown out. And when a digital archive is in danger of going away, Archive Team will rescue it.
