@bradenslen A great essay, indeed, which says: “If you wanted it out there you learnt HTML, how to use FTP, how to link, how to format your page.” This one sentence describes exactly what I did in 1995 to build my Bob Dylan bibliography, with the help of one sys admin on the FTP part. It’s still there with 544 accurate listings of Dylan books. plus 250 Dylan interviews, 85 songbooks & a secret adventure in a land of fantasy. So secret I don’t even remember how to get into it. It’s all still there decades later, with Google routinely warning it is a danger to civilized mankind because of its HTTP pages. Internet 1.0 may rise again!
