Geoff Mason announced in about 1980 the classifcication of quasithin groups of characteristic 2; but never published this step in the classification of the finite simple groups. In January 1996, the authors began work toward a new and more general classification of quasithin groups; the paper gives an exposition of the approach and considerable progress to date.
