A Look Back In Techdirt History

I’ve never felt TechDirt got the attention it deserved, but it’s a great resource and this article was a reminder of the “informed” side of the internet we’ve been focusing on for the past 15 years.  This is a recollection since 1999.  “The site had existed for nearly two years before that, but was mainly done as an email newsletter. Back in March of 1999, the word “blog” still didn’t even exist until a few months later (though “weblog” had been around for a little while before that) and didn’t really catch on for a couple years. Anyway, given 15 years of blog posts, I thought it might be fun to look back at what we were writing about five, ten and fifteen years ago.”
