GEnie was the General Electric Network for Information Exchange; it was a national online service originally owned by GE and operated by their [former] GEIS subsidiary, and in its final days was sold to "Yovelle Renaissance Corp." (a sort of "front group" for IDT) where it quickly degraded, despite an attempt to "webify" it, on its way to a Y2K demise on December 31, 1999.
