The Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang! Facebook Group

By Deane Barker on January 13, 2010

Way back in the 90s, when I was a wee pup in the Internet world, I built a Web site with a handful of other guys.  It was all about James Bond, and it was awesome.

It sounds so juvenile to say we had “the best James Bond site on the Web”…but we totally did.

But, then we all got married and had kids, and we just couldn’t keep it going.  Read this post for more information about why it was so cool.  That post is also an obituary for the site, which we finally shut down in 2006.

Just yesterday, David Morefield, one of the editors of the site, finally joined Facebook.  Then I realized that all the former editors of the site were on Facebook.  Last night, in a fit of inspiration, I threw together a Facebook group for as a memorial to the site.  When I saw that fourteen people had joined overnight, I was thrilled.

Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was a ground-breaking James Bond Web site active in the mid-to-late 90s. It peaked in about 1999, coinciding with the release of “The World is Not Enough.”

MKKBB remains one of the coolest things five guys did on the Internet. This group is a simple place to reconnect and reminisce.

So, if you remember me from the MKKBB days, and you want to reminisce, head on over.  The group is public, so you don’t have to join.

Panos Sambrakos, the founder and core designer, was awesome enough to post a series of screencaps of what the site looked like throughout the years.

MKKBB remains one of the absolutely coolest things I’ve ever done on the Internet.  With it, I am perpetually a wide-eyed 12-year-old, watching “For Your Eyes Only” projected on a sheet hanging from a clothesline at some campground in California in 1983.
