My blog in 2008

So far the earliest capture, I can find, of my blog in The Wayback Machine is from 2008.

It's a nice snapshot of what I used 14 years ago.

Though a lot of the sites/companies mentioned there are long gone; ClaimID, Technorati, Flock, Miro, etc. The general design-pattern of blog post, and its underlying "tech", is still in use today—RSS, microformats, tagging, Twitter.

The great thing about the Internet Archive capture is seeing the actual markup I used. That way, if I can't find the back-up, I can copy & paste it here (which I'll probably do).
