This is a fan site for ISCABBS. ISCABBS is a telnet accessible BBS that has been in operation since 1989. It is the oldest continuously operating free online community on the internet.
Established in 1989 by David "Doctor Dave" Lacey, who created the base code for ISCABBS (D.O.C. / Daves' Own Citadel) ISCABBS quickly established itself as the largest internet BBS (bulletin board system) in the world. The BBS allowed over 1000 users at a time to send instant messages and in many ways was the precursor to modern social media and chat. ISCABBS originated at the University of Iowa and quickly started to service the entire internet.
ISCABBS stands for Iowa Student Computer Association Bulletin Board System.
