Originally called the Chebucto FreeNet, and operating on a Sparc 2 generously loaned by Sun MicroSystems, Chebucto began operating as a host in late October 1993. Since then, we have upgraded to a Sun Sparc 20 which we own. We have also changed our name to Chebucto Community Net (CCN) which better reflects our focus. CCN went public on June 16, 1994. More Chebucto technical information is available.
Chebucto Community Net is more than computer equipment. It's about people and their community. This community net is operated by the Chebucto Community Net Society. Users become members of this not-for-profit society. Members of the Society elect the Board of Directors, whose members formulate policy, and individually chair the many volunteer committees on which Chebucto relies.
