What is Usenet?

Providing discussion forums free of charge.

By Vinod

Usenet is a global network discussion system that was established in 1980.

The system was created by Jim Ellis and Tom Truscott, graduates of Duke University in North Carolina. The two data scientists came up with the concept in 1979 before establishing it a year later.

The system was developed from the UUCIP dial-up network architecture and allows users to read and post messages to categories, or newsgroups, in a bulletin board stule system.
