You And Me We Go Wayback

The Archive Team are doing the lord's work downloading all Tumblr content before it goes away. I wish them every success.

I've long used the wayback machine to look at old sites of yore so wondered how far down the rabbit hole of my own storied past I could go? All the way it seems. For many moons and domain names ago I started what was known as "updating your website frequently".

The very first ever "blog post" I did was on a long defunct site on October 31st 2001. The wayback machine has it. I'm not linking to it. Interesting from a personal growth angle, my head was in a different place 17 years ago. The cringe factor is high.

I wonder how all this will sound 17 years from now?

    Like crap. That's how it will all sound. Reading my old stuff is terrifying.

    You got me beat on my first blog post, which was Feb 2002. I don't remember how long it's been since I went back to read my old stuff.

    As for the Tumblr side of things, there's was a lot of archiving being done before Dec 17th.
