what is this site?
This is E2! Back in the day, years and years ago, it was a sort of cross between a wiki and a message board—this was before wikipedia was so popular. It was inspired by the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy ( much like www.h2g2.com )—a site that would contain everything. In practice some people treated it like an encyclopedia, some people submitted creative writing and poetry, and some people used it like livejournal. It also had a very active offline component; lots of people meeting up, living together, sometimes getting married and having babies.
