What is usenet?

Hello! This is the first post of this new blog focused on the Usenet. Here you'll find information about news servers, newsgroups, free and paid services, usenet clients and... who knows!?
I think that the first post is one of the most difficult, so I would start pointing to one clear definition of what usenet is, from the Wikipedia site.
Usenet was born to organize and spread discussion groups all over the internet and, with the massive growth of bandwidth, storage and processing power, has evolved spreading a huge quantity of binaries each day.
Today web forums and blogs drained users and attention from newsgroup and somebody speaks of the Death of Usenet, as in this article from Slashdot. Is this true? Look at this blog and you will know (hopefully!).
