The Origins of Usenet

The original control messages used to create many of the thousands of newsgroups on Usenet are stored in the UUnet archives. You can browse them here, and you can see the original creation of your favorite Usenet newsgroups. To look at the creation of alt.slack, for instance, just go to the alt. section. However, the messages stored here are compressed in GZIP format to save space; you'll have to unzip them to read them properly.
