Thread Name: BS: why Mudcat?
Subject: RE: BS: why Mudcat?
Mudcat was originally started by Max for discussion of BLUES, and the name derives from that connection.

When the folkish Digital Tradition lost the sponsorship of it's previous site, Max offered them a new home.

The merging of the two, folk and blues, evolved into what we are now.

There wasn't that much of anything very interesting on the web when it started, and I actually had to wait a couple of years after I found it to log in because I didn't have an email account then.

There are very few sites that have been (successfully) around for as long as mudcat, and in my opinion even fewer that deserve the respect that mudcat has earned.

Thanks again, Max (and all the loyal elfs).
