How Oasis Started?

ConnorJ's picture

I'm curious as to how Oasismag got started and the history behind it? I only heard about this site a few weeks ago, and really almost by accident.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Hmm...

I started it in December 1995. It was a monthly magazine format for many years, and now it's more of a blogging/journaling site.

Back issues?

Are any of the back issues/conten available yet? I'd love to see some of those postings from the early days when I was still in diapers!

Well...

The interviews I did are posted going all the way back. The writing of the then-young people are not back online yet.

You can see some old stuff on the Internet archive. The rest is still on my hard drive, waiting for a good way to be merged onto this site again:

Funny, I was just talking about that. "Then-young people?" Geez, you make me sound so...so then-young ;)

Well...

Anyone writing on this site in 95/96 can make no claims to youth anymore.

Just wondering...

Just wondering if any of the writers from the early days of Oasis are still writing on here?

Im amazed and in awe of the fact that a large numbers of the early Oasis writers were around my age...Zach, Douglas, and Ty are three that really stick out to me. Especially Ty! My gawd he had some issues!!! I didn't get to go through as many of the old issues as I'd like to because of school starting, but I'm just more amazed each time I read something new. Thanks guys/girls for spilling your souls on here!

Where are they now?

I looked at the old stories in forever and even I wonder how some of old writers turned out.
