Netspace was one of the first Linux world wide web servers, founded as a student project at Brown University in the summer of 1994. The original computers at Brown were funded in part by a several thousand dollar contribution collected by Phish tapers, who wanted to put up a world wide website for Phish.net’s setlists. “Phish.net” then operated on the early internet with only mailing listservs, FTP file transfers and a Usenet newsgroup, rec.music.phish.
Required reading for anyone that’s a tech nerd like I am. I still have great memories of building my tape list with an HTML for Dummies book while sitting in my dorm computer lab in Normal, IL. We’ve all come a long way, haven’t we?
