Bringing together TeX users online - from Usenet to Web 2.0 and beyond
It all began with the Usenet, around 1980. The online discussion board comp.text.tex emerged, where TeX hackers gathered and still populate it today.
On the continuously developing Internet, TeX user groups created mailing lists, built home pages and software archives. Web forums turned up and lowered the barrier for beginners and occasional TeX users for getting support.
Today, TeX's friends can also follow blogs, news feeds, and take part in vibrant question and answer sites.
In this talk we will look at present online TeX activities.
