Lately, I've been looking for sites that were transitions from UseNet newgroups to Web pages. Bartcop is a great example. He started out as a chronic poster to and it evolved into a newsletter then to simple web pages. Now it's a full website with subscriptions, discussion groups, radio shows, advertisements. It's still has chronic content, but it's admirable that it has lasted for ten years.

Note: 'chronic' is a talk radio industry term for a caller to a show who goal is to torment hosts by challenging them logically, changing the subject, or up-staging the host. Lionel from WOR in New York is an example of a chronic caller who became a national syndicated show.
