Oh God in the early days it was just intellectual threads like the politics of breasfeeding or women's rights, etc, no chat areas or anything like that...

DS and DD came, I believe, from Usenet conventions -- the original Internet places to chat. Probably predate WWW, though I'm not sure about that. Try Dejanews and search for,, etc.
