The Usenet was developed at the University of North Carolina in the year 1979 by students Tom Truscott, Jim Ellis and Steve Bellovin.

It is a global network of commercial grade servers wherein members can post and download messages as well as files to more than 100,000 themed discussion groups called “newsgroups”. The so called “binary newsgroups” are special newsgroups which provide the possibility to add files to the messages. Usenet has no central server or administrator. It is powered by commercial news servers that are connected through multi-gigabit Internet connections. This enables users to download as quickly as their Internet connection would allow. You just log on to the usenet servers, download or post whatever you want, and then log off. In simpler terms, the usenet of today is very much like the Internet; however, you do not need a browser in order to browse around on websites with. All content stored in the usenet servers are converted into text. This means that the content of the binaries, needs to be patched together to create the regular file that we are used to.
