Wayne Bell (computer specialist)
Wayne Bell was the creator of the WWIV BBS system. The First WWIV BBS went online in Los Angeles, CA in December 1984. His own BBS came to be named Amber, node 1 of the WWIVNet BBS network. His handle as the SysOp was Random.
Wayne continued to own and develop WWIV software for over a decade, becoming an iconic figure in the online world, before the privatization and subsequent expansion of the Internet caused the BBS world to fade in the mid to late nineties.
Wayne eventually sold WWIV, retaining his career as a computer technician.
Clips of an interview with Bell appear as part of BBS: The Documentary.
