The WELL is an online Forum and one of the oldest Internet communities.

History Edit

The WELL was originally a dial-up bulletin board system. Later, when Internet access became more broadly available, the WELL's text-based forums became available via a command-line client for those with shell accounts on an Internet service provider. Since the web has become more popular, the WELL has begun to provide a web interface to its discussion boards, which it calls "conferences".

Business model Edit

The WELL uses a Freemium model; some of their conferences (forums) are available to anyone, while others require membership. There is no Advertising on the site.

Culture and community norms Edit
