History :

short version
Red Sector Inc. was found in 1985 before Internet by Baudsurfer, Bill Best, Greg, Kangol Kid and the Skeleton. It was a hacker group at the beginning (bbs, philez, crack, hack, phreak) and it was based in North America. In 1989 and after some Canadian busts, some members of RSI left to form TRSI with Tristar in Europe focusing more on legal demoscene. In 1993 the German demosection of TRSI illegitimately claimed to dissolve unilaterally RSI group without express consent of any of the five original group founders. In 2003 Tristar put a stop to TRSI illegal merger. In 2008 RSI put a stop to illegal TRSI merger. This year Red Sector Inc. proudly celebrates its 30th Anniversary.

long version
Red Sector Inc. (RSI) was founded by Baudsurfer, Bill Best, Greg, Kangol Kid and The Skeleton in 1985. It started out as a Canadian bbs, crack, hack and phreak group before the Internet and World Wide Web. Do not take for granted everything you can read about RSI elsewhere on the net as it is error-prone :
Red Sector was build by four Canadians called Billy Best, Greg, Kangol Kid, Skeleton and a Frenchman called Baudsurfer in spring 1985. In the summer of 1985 The Skeleton and Baudsurfer were asked to set up RSI's WHQ Pirate's Ship BBS. "RSI ran the first Canadian bulletin board EVER!" [4]. In 1986, a year later, Irata (a swapper) and Mr Zeropage were asked to join RSI and set up the European section. Later in 1992 Iratas would revive RSI/TRSI [5] without permission from all co-founders. Was a part of The Light Circle. RSI became famous with their legendary demo 'Red Sector Mega Demo' that is still considered a classic to this day. The group's initial foray onto the PC scene involved a productive cooperation with the US PC group, Public Enemy. Red Sector built a co-op with Tristar (Tristar & Red Sector Incorporated) around 1990 on the PC and Amiga. At that time RSI was dead on the C64. RSI was reborn in 1992.
