Flutterby turns 8! (roughly)

2006-02-02 02:50:34.282569+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Because I've nothing else of value to say today: Somewhere in February 1998 I sent the first email to Newwwsboy[Wiki] which inaugurated the dynamic portions of Flutterby.com. I had some pages I'd migrated from www.chattanooga.net, but that was the first weblog post here. It was probably a little later in the month, but in years past I've forgotten it altogether, and there was nothing else going on here today.

So, happy 8th birthday to Flutterby, a little web site that started out as a pean to my ego, and while that's still a large component of it, I'm happy that it's managed to transcend me, and become a place that challenges and informs me. I started it for two reasons: I wanted to not pester people with forwarded email of stuff I found cool, but more importantly I wanted to build the web site that I wanted to visit.

Thanks to all of you who participate, both in comments and on the front page, and who've helped make it that.
