The goal of this site is to provide organizations and local community services a place to
call home and to have an identity on the Internet in relation to their home in
Southold, Long Island New York.
We can help provide a variety of technologies, resources,
expertise and solutions to those that need these services. There a number of
individual projects that we wish to include here over time. Some I hope will bring smiles
to those who visit.
In the summer of 1995 North Fork Internet first began a project to
assist in establishing community infrastructure on the internet, helping libraries,
schools, museums, Southold Town offices and many other organziations in the area to
establish their first email addresses, websites, and internet connectivity. Many are still
using those tools we provided them. That project was called the North Fork
Technet. It is five years old now, and still growing. This project is a new project, with
new challenges and new ideas.
Please send us your comments and suggestions as this is truly for all of us.
Why do we bother? In 1640 my ancestors, Barnabus Horton and
his wife, Mary Schuyler , and other families came across the Atlantic ocean from England and founded
this area we call Southold town, I hope this site services to keeps their memories and
pioneering sprit alive in helping to advance the good work and efforts of all those who
have taken up the task of keeping the area we call home a good and wholesome place to live
for now and for our future generations to come.
