It was 20 years ago today that @Mortin cobbled together a server in his closet with @celcho and apushardware.com went live with its first article. A year later that became Icrontic.com (and then 3 years after that Short-Media.com and then Icrontic.com again even tho there was also another Icrontic... it gets complicated).
Of the thousands of communities built before and since that time, most are long gone. Thanks to all the old-timers for sticking around for so bloody long; your reward is being old. And thanks to all the newer folks for finding common cause with us and keeping things fresh.
A "community" isn't a thing that forms once and exists forever. Change is inevitable and constant. Folks who arrived last week are just as important as folks who have been around all 20 years, because you have one critical thing in common: you kept coming back.
