How it started:
The internet was a very different place when EE was formed; there was no Google, no social media, and web-based email had just begun to gain popularity. Information was rarely easy to find.
People came to EE with their tech problems because they knew they could find trustworthy people who wanted to help. These problem-solvers who first gathered on EE were pioneers who brought the technology industry out of the garage and into the future.
How its going:
Today, even though the internet is a busy place with millions of communities of all shapes and sizes, many of the original EE pioneers are still active members.
Twenty-five years after its formation, the EE community is still growing because tech professionals know that members of the original technology community are people they can trust.
