What is the WDG?

When was the WDG formed?
The WDG had its humble beginning on May 25, 1996 with the issuance of invitations into the group by John Pozadzides. Of the original 10 invited members, four were unable to accept due to extenuating circumstances. Unfortunately, the two women who were invited both were unable to join, leaving the group with nothing but men. Despite this shortcoming, the members were able to function enough to provide all of the information available on this site until Tina Marie accepted the WDG's invitation to join on December 22, 1996. :-)
Where is the WDG located?
The members of the WDG collaborate virtually from their homes all over the world (Holland, Canada, Norway, UK, USA). Even after a decade, none have yet met face to face.
How do they do that?
It ain't easy...
