A perspective on online community from 1995

From 1992 to 1998, I wrote about the future of technology for Esther Dyson in her monthly newsletter, Release 1.0. We also ran an annual conference, the PC Forum, which back in that day was one of the top two conferences that all startups wanted to debut at.

My favorite panel at PC Forum was this one about online community, titled (I think) Virtual People and Places. Two of the panelists, Bob Kavner and Sherry Turkle, had just been onstage (you can see them in this video). Then three more folks joined us — Adam Curry, Carol Peters and Stewart Brand — and we had at it. In a great way. Like this.
