Happy birthday

The Ideapad turns eight on Wednesday. Eight! When this page launched, Google was in beta, Netscape was still battling Microsoft prior to the AOL acquisition, and blog tools like Pyra’s Blogger had yet to be invented. Heck, even the word “blog” hadn’t been invented yet.

I am proud (and more than a little impressed with myself) that the Ideapad has endured, more or less continually, for so long. Some of the archives are a lot of fun, and a few things I’ve written have become lovely little remembrances. Thanks for reading, and for those of you that have been referenced along the way, thank you for indulging me. I hope it’s been as fun for you as it has for me.
