Guilderson) Subject: Kibo makes front page of Boston Herald Message-ID: <DRG.94Dec1111812@odyssey.hq.ileaf.com> Lines: 12 Sender: usenet@HQ.Ileaf.COM Nntp-Posting-Host: odyssey Organization: Interleaf Inc, Waltham MA USA Date: Thu, 1 Dec 1994 16:18:12 GMT Status: O The Boston Herald ran a front page story on Kibo (11-30-94). It was so dry that it failed to capture the essence of its subject matter. However, that is not the point I wish to address. The story claimed that Kibo was the first non-techie net celebrity. I wish to dispute that claim. I believe Carasso was the first. For every Christ there is an anti-Christ and Carasso is the anti-Christ of the net. He firebombed the net long before Kibology was invented. He mastered misc.test bait. He torched peaceful net-neighborhoods for no apparent reason. He drove a black windowless van before it became vogue. He tortured lovelorn geeks. Hardly the kind of net personality that you would want to embrace in mainstream media. Hence, history is rewritten to remove the ugly blemish that was Carasso.
