"SIM has been an early adopter of Internet technologies and the program has embraced and integrated them into the SIM Department curriculum since before the existence of the Web, going back to the 80's. The first MassArt web server was created as an initiative of the SIM Department in the mid-1990s with student participation in the design process. In February 2003, students Matt Karl and August "Kai" Kaiser, along with Professor Dana Moser, launched the first version of (http://sim.massart.edu) with an open source software stack (Linux/Apache/MySql/PHP) on commodity hardware and had a DNS entry created for it. This site is a community contact portal and face book, keeps track of student presentations and production schedules, links to syllabi, calendars, research guides, studio management information, discussion boards, and portfolios. For historical reference, Facebook was launched February 2004. Over the years, Matt Karl has continually re-written the interface for the SIM website, adapting to the specific needs of our department's faculty and students. At this point we have a custom-built Content Management System (CMS) that others have used as a reference. Our department emphasizes and promotes student participation, and we used the server to help in the instruction of students who were interested in network interactions and system administration. You can see a history of the development of the SIM site on the wayback machine (https://web.archive.org/web/*/sim.massart.edu)."
