Just for curiosity. Recently i was thinking about the differences between the old Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) and today’s Content Management Systems (CMS). Probably there is no much difference. Both systems are somehow frameworks/systems that help to organize information and present them. In the old world we had ANSI or RIP graphics, nowadays we have HTML + CSS. The real difference is that the first one was based on Plain old telephony service (POTS) and now everything is Internet based. I still remember the old days with dial-up modems and terminal programs. Today we have broadband internet connections and the browser. In the early days with metered internet, being online was a valuable thing. Now with flat-rates, i can go online whenever i want for as long as i want.
