Between 1996 and 1998 a few off-spring ZTT fans ran their own little 808 mailinglist called globalState (which is where the original name of the 808state.com site came from). Members were:
Scott Weaver (USA),
Josh Bortz (USA),
Lionel D (South Africa),
After 1998 some people disappeared for years. However all, except Scott & Josh, returned to the new 808 forum at some time and occasionally post (user names are now: De Lillie, riz, Roland, smiley, solarex, markus). With the recent return of prodigal son Lionel D, the question has come up, what ever happened with Josh Bortz? Lionel has offered to find out, so I'm trying to dig out Josh's parent's phone number. Also there is a 808 radio show from ca 1996 where you can hear him live in the studio.
