This chapter talks about what is called virtual jazz, and the virtual jazz world. The earliest days of this virtual jazz world have been summed by Bret Primack—writer for Jazz Times in 1998—as the fastest growing phenomenon in the history of mankind. The website Jazz Central Station also contributed to its dramatic growth. Although many other web-based ventures were victims of the “dot-com bubble,” JCS managed to survive. It was the largest jazz resource and gathering place. However, JCS came to an end about a year after Billboard glowingly reviewed it in 1998. That same year, IBM researcher Jason Ellis highlighted some features of JCS and why it was an effective site for the formation of an online community.
