On January 3, 1999, at about two o'clock in the morning, netpoets.com was born.

Zzzrrrp. Wrong. Rewind.

Okay, that particular date and time is when I officially registered the domain, netpoets.com, with Network Solutions. In truth, however, the web site that was soon to be hosted on the domain netpoets.com had already been in existence for several months.

From our first newsletter:

"Less than three months ago, during the second week of November, 1998, I added a new subdirectory called /poetry to one of my existing web sites (at rcarnell.com). It was little more than a toy, a chance to try a few new web design techniques in a practical setting. I posted a score of poems on the site, some of my oldest work, and invited others to join me."
