Dear Readers, Welcome!

NetHappenings Founded in 1989 is the granddaddy of all education mailing lists distributes announcements about the Internet, latest resources, especially those that are education-related.

History of this free educational mailing list, moderated and published by the Educational CyberPlayGround, Inc.

In 1993 former biology teacher of twenty years, and internet pioneer Gleason Sackmann, was at the helm.

Gleason announced his retirement in 2004 and at his request I accepted the responsibility of keeping this piece of internet history going. My name is Karen Ellis, and it is my honor to serve as tradition bearer and moderator at his request. The Educational CyberPlayGround, Inc. and NetHappenings Mailing List remains a free resource thanks to the support of our advertisers. Help keep it free and please click on ads of interest

FYI: Gleason used to send up to 35 messages a day, when email and mailing lists were considered a very unusual technology and only being used by they the rare and unusual folks in the education community, back in the day before web sites were ever invented. And back then we were happy to get them!

I have been following NetHappenings from the very beginning some 15 years ago! Not in US, very good work. I am one those people that got intrigued about the Net as a new kind of "computing machine" with new kind of "applications", in late 80s, but I was placed far away from the main scene.
So "NetHappenings" was a first "media" stream full of things that the Net was giving rise to and was made of. A kind of cyber-radio full of facinating stories, songs, talks and info about new sets too. all the best,
