My friend and Mentor Frank Burns of The Meta Network (Metanet) and Metasystems Design Group (MDG)
As an Army officer, Burns served two tours in Vietnam (Silver Star, Bronze Star with 2 OLCs). He created the military recruitment slogan "Be All That You Can Be" in 1980 and was director of "Task Force Delta" (an ad hoc working group of 300 U.S. Army psychic adepts that met quarterly at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas) beginning in 1983. In the same year, Burns created the Meta Network (TMN), one of the first public online communities. TMN was one of the consortia of online communities and networks that banded together to form the Electronic Networking Association in 1985. It describes itself as being "dedicated to learning and creative freedom". Burns ultimately became president of Metasystems Design Group.
The Meta Network (TMN) Online Community
I spent my twenties as a denizen of the online community The Meta Network (TMN). The Meta Network (TMN) is an online community dedicated to learning and creative freedom. Founded in 1983, the goal was to make rich interaction possible beyond the limits of time and space. MetaNet continues to thrive as a haven of stimulating resources and conversation in an impersonal Internet.
