On March 15, 1991, at 19:42:11 CST, SCREEN-L's first message went
winging out into the ether.
Since then, several thousand messages have been shared, a (very) few
flames have been fanned, and many new cyber-pals have been made.  In these
four years we've seen the Internet transform from a cloistered hang-out
for computer-literate academics into the 1990's hottest buzzword, and we've
watched our membership grow from a constant of around 300 to 755
(last I checked) hard-riding cultural scholars/teachers/students.
We've adapted to new technologies by gatewaying SCREEN-L to Usenet
(bit.listserv.screen-l), providing the SCREEN-L archives through
Gopher (, and constructing a brand new World Wide Web
site:  SCREENsite (
And our operating software (LISTSERV) has been improved, too, so that,
for example, users may now receive a daily INDEX of the messages
posted here (instead of each and every message that's posted).
Thanks, SCREEN-Litarians, for your support and participation during
the past 48 months!
Now if only I can figure a way to get those dang error messages out of
my mailbox...
