I am wanting to add a section on my webpage telling the story of how JP1 came to be and specifically who did what and give proper credit where it is due. I know Rob, Tommy and a few others names but I want to give credit to evryone. Not to mention the inventors of the most recent invention of the USB cable.

Also is anyone interested in a serial version of the jp1 cable. I know plans are avalaible for it but before I come out with one, the cost is likely to be near what the ultra and USB versions are, I need to know if anyone would actually buy one. The way I see it is that for most, the simple or ultra jp1 would work fine and for those without a parallel port on there PC a USB version fits the bill. But even though it is possible to make a serial (9-pin version) I don't see that it's pratical. Any thought would be appreciated. Demand for product is wah drives business.

And, Thanks again to EVERYONE for there help in this JP1 Universe. I'd have nothing to sell with out the pioneers of this and no one to sell to without out wondeful jp1 buyers and users. Thank you from

You're welcome. I have listed some of the early pioneers on the History page of my site, but it's woefully out of date as it was created before even John Fine was in the group.
Please don't PM me with remote questions, post them in the forums so all the experts can help!

I've been with JP1 for awhile although I haven't contributed much. I was with NASA/JSC when the internet was ARPA/DARPA-net and therefore have my own take on the history of JP1 from that perspective. And from that perspective JP1 is an excellent example of how the internet provided a meeting ground for a wide range of talented and dedicated folks who used it to organize and disseminate their combined efforts.

JP1, in fact, comes very close to achieving the initial goals of setting up the internet in the first place. As an Academic/Government initiative it was supposed to foster the free exchange of information, devoid of restriction and a "for profit" motif. It's hard sometimes to think back to those days when you see all the different directions the WWW has taken. But JP1 remains an excellent example of what we thought the internet could be at it's best.
don't let the "Status" fool ya. I've been here forever.

Amen to that! Glad to see someone else standing on the same soapbox i am. i too am an old Arpanet person (BBN) and totally agree, the JP1
effort (i am a total newbie to it though) is exactly what was worked for and
envisoned. Spam, Viruses, Crackers, unaccountable punks in their bedrooms (not hackers) are
all abominaltions and a real comment on what most of the human race
is all about. Thanks to JP1 folks for keeping the dream alive.
You CAN change the world but you'd better create your own, just incase.

Ok, i got a little carried away...gotta smother some of the flames: Laughing
I didn't mean to bash humans that hard.
its the few morons that have access that ruin it for everyone. Some
surly envisioned this (i certainly didn't) and regardless made the technology decentralized and democratic. otherwise, one could
view it as arrogant censorship and ripe for big brother.
the net was developed with public funds and the public, morons and all, have a right to direct its growth, or lack of it.
Phil (one of many)
