The overture is about to start...

If you are reading this, you have found your way into mothernyc's latest incarnation, the Motherboards. These boards have been dreamed about and discussed for many years as the next logical step in our long, glorious merging of computers and clubs. I really appreciate your taking time out from Cruising for Sex, fuckedcompany, The Well, The Hang or any of the other great online communities that usually take up your valuable posting time.

Our greatest wish for these boards is that our collaborators and co-enthusiasts worldwide can begin to speak directly with each other, without having to speak through us so much. As one of New York's oldest clubland online communities, we receive a staggering amount of mail every day, by people looking for news of the real New York City, or locals trying to get the word out on their usually very worthy projects and nights.

So yes, browse the boards or search them under any name or phrase you'd like, do post, and when you're comfortable, feel free to start a topic. You can edit or delete any topic or message that you post, just hit the handy pencil icon at the lower right of the post in question.

I hope the conversations begun on the Motherboards will ripple out into as much positive change in the nightworld as the club that birthed them did. Thanks again, and enjoy!

With butterflies, night before launch,
Empress Chi Chi Valenti
Original Post
I came across this post quite by accident and thought Id bounce it up for history's sake and add a few grey eminence-like thoughts of my own. is the Empress' inaugural post right before the boards opened. A small group of us, maybe 25, were invited in beforehand to seed, and from that group came most of the early and original moderators.

It is a great misconception about communities like this that they just happen - this post reminds us that our Empress had a good deal of it in mind when it begun.

Here's to master plans, and divine providence, and virtual kingdoms and queendoms that finally begin to rival - if not surpass - the RW (thats
real world for those who don't parlez IRC.)
