Story: The Glassdog Club

Glassdog (glassdog.com) has been Lance Arthur’s digital playground since 1996. It’s a personal labor of love for Arthur, in spite of the site’s ironic corporate voice and references to “global world domination.” Fans of Arthur’s design and writing had been gathering there for years when Arthur decided to give them a community setting to talk back.

In 1999, Arthur launched the Glassdog Club. He started with a free Yahoo! Clubs site, finally migrating to glassdog.org, where Arthur had installed the frustratingly popular Ultimate Bulletin Board (infopop.com), a low-cost server-side community tool. (See Chapter 4 for more on community tools.)
