It appears that I provided incorrect information. SiliconInvestor.com was actually founded in 1998, not 1995.

Wondering why it "corrected" itself.....People use that thing for investment and other decisions, not just inquiries into the nature of a community.

SI's darkest history was with SI Bob altering and deleting posts to help Amr Elgindy

For those who don't remember Bre-X, it was the largest gold mining scandal in history...

I wonder if any SIers got their 15 minutes of fame from that post. Or if CNBC got a Bre-X bear on the air. As I recall, they were numerous. Did that post get replicated on the many other Bre-X threads, most of which had more traffic? siliconinvestor.com

Shame we can't search back to the early days.

I have that fiasco all on tape, talking to brokers, and a news letter publisher that recommended Brex in the penny's and wold around 200 dollars.

That was a time when SI was so busy. I wish we could search that far back, I think an advanced Google search may do it

Deja-du. 26 years ago I was into gaming big, mainly flight combat sims, like EF2000. I got it working on my old ThinkPad Windows XP. Had to use DOSBox and the game plays once again. Drinking Pepsi and chatting on SI was what I was doing 26 years ago.

Had some bugs when installing a piece of laced software, not malware just damn programs. Took 4 hours to clean up and scan to be safe.

I watched an interview with Adam Taggart of Wealthion fame the other day. He was asked how he went from being a Silicon Valley VP to an independent podcaster. He alluded to being part of(or at least lurking) on an online group that sounded awfully lot like the original Residential Real Estate Crash thread. He was trying to buy a home(Mountain View I think) and credited his time reading the thread with changing his mind and holding back from buying in the early 2000's bubble. He came to the conclusion that American kids just aren't taught about financial issues and dedicated his career to education in the venue for the common man.

I suppose SI has quite the illustrious membership, although it is likely to remain buried.
