CIX receives a boost

I can't claim to be one of the first users of CIX. I joined up around 1990, three years after the company was started, though I had dabbled with its predecessor, Compulink, which was the UK hub of the Fido Bulletin Board System (does anybody remember those?). The fact that many Liberal Democrats (including all the leaders up to Nick Clegg) latched on to CIX, as well as the conferences on cricket, writing and the computer techniques I was interested in persuaded me to sign up then. It has features which are still unique and of course a distinctive community. The company's acquisition by ICUK, after some rather dodgy years, should guarantee its future.

The professionals' views are here, here and here.
