On this day in 1999, I tried out Dave Winer’s EditThisPage software, designed for (mostly) non-techies to enter the infant blogging movement and named my blog ‘blivet’. I’ve met a number of people I consider friends over the years and have been fortunate to meet several of them in person. I performed the marriage of two of them which is one of my favorite moments. So, Happy Birthday, blivet tool & die, and happy birthday to all of us from that time! And whether you’ve been along for the entire ride or this is your first time here, WELCOME! Here’s to the next 19!
