The Denver Exchange, Inc. (TDE) has been providing innovative online
services since before the World Wide Web emerged, and long before
the popular rise of the Internet.
TDE started business as The Exchange, a bulletin board system (BBS)
located in Houston, Texas. (BBSs were small online services similar
to services like the old CompuServe, GEnie, and others that were
popular at the time.) That was back in 1989, and The Exchange was
one of the first multiline BBSs in Houston, as well as one of the
most popular. The BBS provided forums, chat, file downloads, online
games, and more.
James Craig, founder and operator
of The Exchange, initially operated his business as a part-time
endeavor. But it didn't take long before James left his job to devote
full-time to the business.
In 1991, James decided to move from his Texas home, and relocate
to Denver, Colorado. The Exchange came with him, launching as The
Denver Exchange (TDE), and offering the same features as the BBS
did when it started in Houston. At the same time, Nathan Harrington
became a partner in the business.
With the early commercial growth of the Internet, as well as the
emergence of NCSA's Mosaic (the first implementation of the graphical
World Wide Web), interest in BBSs began to diminish as people shifted
their online activities to the web. TDE recognized early on this
shift, and was quick to launch Internet services for its BBS membership.
Internet dial-up and related services were made available in 1995,
before many current players entered the market.
With time, TDE shift its focus entirely from the BBS to Internet
services and related products, and the BBS accepted its last call
Today, TDE prides itself in being an innovative, friendly provider
of Internet services. We realize, as many of our customers do, that
bigger is not necessarily better. While providing quality services
for both consumers and businesses at a competitive price, we offer
a level of service that simply can't be matched by big, national
players. Our customers recognize that difference, and continue to
regularly refer customers to us.
