Tolworthy wrote me the other day to point out that there’s a discussion thread on the old foyer that has been continuously running for more than seven years, and asked if there are any to top it. Does anyone here know?
Then he waxed philosophical:
Next year the thread reaches the age of accountability, an there’s probably some symbolic blog mileage there. The ex-Mormon community coming of age? While 2004 was hardly the start of the Internet or even the DAMU, it was pre-FLAK, pre-PostMormon, pre-billboards, pre-YouTube, and pre-lots of other stuff. The exmo community was then still largely transient, and a seven year thread is a reminder that we are settled and established.
True, and it got me thinking that it might be fun to do a collaborative timeline of the major events in the exmo online community. I got started, but I mostly know my own little corner of the exmo-Internet. Do others here have dates to contribute?
(Look here for the timeline if it fails to imbed.)
