I’ve been on Arachne since 1996 - just about the beginning. I will always remember the excitement of reading the many, many pages of messages that came every day in my digest. So much information, and I wanted to print it all out! I had been making lace in a vacuum - none of my friends or relatives had a clue, so all that talk was an exotic, extraordinary experience.
I do miss the old Arachne, but that level of excitement just couldn’t continue and it would be hard to take if it did. I understand the lure of Facebook, and it’s a great advantage that you can upload photos together with your message. I’ve been told Facebook is old, Twitter is getting past it, and Instagram is the best right now, but I don’t understand how Twitter and Instagram are better for our purposes than Facebook - or even good old Arachne. We need the ability to write long, involved messages. Adele > > How many of us are still here on Arachne? > I remember when Arachne was THE place to be.
