Association Chat has been a regular weekly chat, hosted mostly on Twitter, for the past six years.

But in 1980, Compu Serve — one of the earliest commercial Internet services — would release its own take on the chat concept, allowing more than 123,000 to sign on nightly under screennames like “Mike” and “Silver.” (Both names are, incidentally, critical to chat room history: They were, on Valentine’s Day 1983, one of the first couples to marry as a result of online chat.) Even though Compu Serve’s “CB Simulator” was a commercial service, it shared something of the pioneering quirkiness of ye Talkomatic chats of old.

If the Internet was an uncharted wilderness, however, the ‘90s were its Gold Rush.

For the past few weeks Association Chat has been quietly testing a new platform for the weekly Tuesday chats.
