Hello everyone, I go by the alias of AloeVega (taken from aloe vera and the Vega system featured in the Green Lantern comics). I prefer they/them pronouns and masculine honorifics. I never really experienced the early internet personally, but I've always sort of had an interest in looking at the history of fandoms and the ways they communicated, which lead to me checking out a lot of Usenet archives and old Web 1.0 sites. When I started looking at these, it struck me how much more personal and less corporate they felt compared to the modern internet.

My main interests personally are mainly in the areas of science fiction and comic books. I really like Doctor Who (mainly the Classic series) and its spinoffs, especially Faction Paradox. In the realm of comics, I read a ton of DC stuff, and in particular I like Green Lantern and Superman a lot. I'm also really into music. I'm a jazz musician irl, and I spend a lot of time listening to different stuff - I'll listen to just about anything, but my particular interests are in jazz, funk, hip-hop, punk, and anything avant-garde or experimental.

I don't really have a website yet, but I'm planning on making one, and when I do you'll be able to find it at https://aloevega.neocities.org/

Looking forward to getting involved with this community!

Thank you both for the warm welcome!

I must admit that for me, I was interested in Usenet mainly to see the way fandoms were in the early days of the Internet, so I haven't really looked into how they are nowadays too much. I do know that alt.toys.transformers is still active, if that's at all up your alley!
