The Brainstorm, The DX Logbook
(1984-1987)
David Wallace, David Wallace and LaDawna HowardBBS 64 Written by Tom Wheeler, BBS 64 (Written By Tom Wheeler) and BIZ 64 (Written by Bill Atchison)
"DX Logbook was Ham Radio/Techie oriented. It seemed to be well recieved. I had a lot of help from people like Tom Wheeler and Jim Howard who had already made names for themselves in the early 80's Kansas City BBS community. The Brainstorm was a shorter lived bulletin board but became very popular with 40 - 50 callers a day during the Summer and Fall of 86. Really a place for anyone to go and express their ideas. Political, Philosophical, Religion, etc. Computer use was a Commodore 64. The software was BBS 64 then switched to then BIZ 64." - David Wallace

The Arkham Asylum
(1988-1991)
Hotblack/Professor Deziarty/Philip RobinsonBiz 64
"Was laid out like a 'create your own adventure' with hidden menu options and approx 12 message boards. MAterials were mostly dedicated to philosophy and consciousness expansion (ala Robert Anton Wilson/Illuminatis, Thornley/Principia Discordia, and various oddities) Central theme was the Arkham Asylum (NOT the one used by Batman DC Comics creators, but my own personal vision per writings of H.P. Lovecraft). Had 3 'levels of insanity' that a user could choose- each progressively harder to navigate- but also more rewarding once 'mapped' out. The HARDEST level [dubbed 'INSANITY'] had an area called "Hotblack's Brain"- it was a tesseract [hypercube/5th dimensional cube]. Dave Potter (syso pof '64th Dimension') and Dave ? (another local sysop) had actually mapped out the section and figured it out that the area was indeed a tesseract..it drove them nuts while they were mapping it.. :) I still have the computer [Commodore 64] and software [Biz64] to start the bbs up again, but no time or energy to bother..." - Philip Robinson
