The Hummer Mailing List, or HML, began on June 26, 1996. It still exists today.
In 2003, a web forum was incorporated. It was integrated with the mailing list so that messages posted to either would post to both. This unique concept served to provide online communications to all interested in Hummers, regardless of preference in format. It also led to the HML becoming known as The Hummer Network as it branched out to include, not only the full-featured web forum, but to new the Hummer models, the H2 and H3.
In 2005, the web forum was vastly improved. It remains a state-of-the-art sytem.
