I sure did like what I saw of the BBS culture back in the day. I only really dabbled in it while it was a dying culture, but it was so exciting and new compared to AOL.(yeah, I know) I know there are quite a few amateur radio guys making BBSs and the like over the airwaves. Amateur radio is sort of archaic, but to me it feels like the Internet when it was the frontier, and each login was a new adventure. I have heard a lot of hackers are also big into amateur radio.

I got a recommendation for you: try reading the history book, "tragedy and hope." It has a similar story of suppression. It was written by professor Carroll Quigley, and is a great summary of the latter century up to 1960 something. His book was suppressed because a few pages mentioned some old banking family names and because he makes connections between governments and the round table groups, the organizations that would go on to be the Council on Foreign Relations. An unaltered reprint exists, is 1300 pages, and very understandable. I think you'd appreciate it.

Theres some who need some deniability for their packetband rf sniffing rigs, but since you can't encrypt anything in ham-land, people don't really use it much.
