Default The oldest discussion forum

How long have discussion forums been around and which one do you believe is the oldest one? Corfid is the oldest that I know of. (It started in 1999.) Most of the other ones I visit were started in 2003, and another I visit was started in 2005.

In 1995 no computer for me yet, and every year I would always ask EMP for the concert list. One particular response that I received from the office one year was, there's this Fifer person who has lots of info on everything Lightfoot on the Internet. The times they were a changing.

No computer for me until 2001. Just trying to learn to use one at a community college. Never saw anyone's concert schedule until the past three years. Wonder wha's up with the Fifer person.

Last I heard Matt was in Texas, but that was awhile ago. The below link from the Way Back Machine gives you an idea of what it was like on the information Super Highway 10 years (that's not possible) ago:

It was simple and well done for those of us starving for info on Lightfoot. Knowing we were the only true fan on the face of the earth.... Man those were great times!!

Matthew Fifer yes indeed !
