Discussion site launched by Automatic Media. (For the material, see Plastics.)

To try and give it a more "managed" feel, they had a number of existing media partners who would moderate each section, essentially running a type of WebLog to trigger discussion threads.

Was originally intended to be run on EveryThing2 engine, but they changed their mind and went with SlashCode, since the EveryThing2 interface is a bit of a mind-blower.

When Automatic Media (the DotCom) shut down, Plastic went dark as well. But it relaunched in late 2001. Minus the media partners.
