MAGIC! - The Global Magicians Network

1990 - 1997

  • MAGIC! (Note the exclaimation point) WAS THE FIRST PRIVATE TELECOMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM STRICTLY FOR MAGICIANS TO ENGAGE IN BOTH PRIVATE AND DOUBLE PRIVATE CHAT. MANY THOUGHTS WERE EXPLORED. THE EXPERIMENT'S SUCCESS BROUGHT HUNDREDS OF CONJURING RELATED AFFICIANADOS TOGETHER VIA MODEM FOR THE FIRST TIME IN PRIVATE.

  • MAGIC! 'S DEDICATED SYSOP REGULARLY BACKED UP THE MESSAGE BASE THINKING THAT ONE DAY IT MIGHT BE A VALUABLE ARCHIVE. WHILE THE DOUBLE PRIVATE MESSAGES WILL HOPEFULLY NEVER BE RELEASED TO THE GENERAL MAGIC FRATERNITY THOSE MESSAGES CONSIDERED "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY" ARE CONTAINED HERE AND WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE CHRONOLOGICALLY FROM DAY ONE MESSAGE ONE AS TIME ROLLS.**

    Well, time has rolled by and we've installed all the database that Dr. Lichtman was able to salvage after the earth quake.

  • THIS WAS AN EXCITING TIME FOR MAGIC GENERALLY. NO LONGER DID WE HAVE TO RELY ON MAGAZINES AND THEIR 90 TO 120 DAY LAG TIME TO READ THE LATEST NEWS AND TRICKS; AND THE LATEST IT WAS. HERE THE ILLUMINITA VISITED REGULARLY AND MANY LET THEIR FEELINGS BE KNOWN. NOW YOU WON'T HAVE TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES?
