Toronto Free-Net notes.
Free-Net notes. it's a great idea but...
The Toronto Free-Net has been my great pride (and on occasion pain) for quite some time now. Here is some material about the Toronto Free-Net, it's origins and history.

I am still working on this, sorry...

Still a few points

  • Early 1993 - Concept of doing a Toronto Free-Net formed at a meeting in Laine Ruus's office at the University of Toronto based on other Free-Nets operating in the United States.
  • Spring 1993 - I get involved with the Toronto Free-Net, starting out as co-chair of the Hardware-Software group (they asked for volunteers...).
  • November 1994 - the Toronto Free-Net opens to the public.

Comment regarding the above are welcome at
