Abstract
It all began in the 1980s with mailing lists such as \code, and Usenet. The online discussion board \code emerged around 1990, where TeX hackers gathered and still frequent it today. On the continuously developing Internet, TeX user groups created mailing lists, built home pages and software archives. Web forums turned up and lowered the barrier for beginners and occasional TeX users for getting support. Today, TeX’s friends can also follow blogs, news feeds, and take part in vibrant question and answer sites. In this talk we will look at present online TeX activities.
