OFAI's work on Usenet has been covered in articles in The Register and TechSpot:
- "USENET, the OG social network, rises again like a text-only phoenix" by Liam Proven
- "Usenet is still alive, and the Big-8 Board is managing things again" by Alfonso Maruccia
Since 2020, OFAI researcher Tristan Miller has been helping to preserve and revitalize Usenet, the Internet's oldest federated discussion network. He has been speaking regularly about this work at technical and academic events and last year co-authored a retrospective article on Usenet in the journal Internet Histories.
