Cybergrass Celebrates 22 Years on the Web September 9th

Cybergrass 22 YearsCybergrass is celebrating another year of bluegrass music on the Internet. Wow! What a ride its been. We have gone through five iterations, four domain names and we're still here. What started out as just a research project almost a quarter century ago has evolved into the world's oldest bluegrass music web site which, is also the world's oldest music site of any genre. Cybergrass was born 22 years ago when the web was in its fetal infancy. There were no tools and everything was alpha release source code. The web was dark and void and the Internet was still just a research project -- the Research Internet. Bob Cherry, working with electronic documentation at Xerox got his hands on some very early code and managed to put it together with minimal documentation. On September 9, 1992, he posted about 50 songs from the Digital Tradition files on a Xerox PARC web server with a simple HTML index. HTML was all coded by hand in those days. That was the beginning of what has evolved into a premier bluegrass music site on the web.

To Carry or Not To Carry? Once Burned, Twice Learned

Bob CherryCybergrass is known for carrying accurate and relevant information about bluegrass music but, every now and then, somebody attempts to take advantage of us and the exposure we offer. A few years ago, that is exactly what happened. We received numerous conflicting news items from competing parties and we set out to verify who was telling the truth and who was not. It turns out that one party was feeding us a lot of press releases that were all determined to be false in content. The opposing party was being amazingly neutral and honest.
