Six years ago today I stared this site in a fit of creative frustration. I needed a safety valve. It has proven to be that and more time and again.
When I started this site, Facebook was still a closed off exclusive network, Twitter had not yet been unleashed upon the world, and I was building a solid social network of creative types. Not that we called them ‘social networks’ back then. We called them ‘web sites’ – the social part was assumed. Apple hadn’t released the iPhone, though it had been rumoured for a long time. No iPads, no Android. No 3D televisions. At least this website outlasted George W Bush, who was inaugurated for his second term the same day I started this site.
Thanks to those of you who have stuck with me the whole six years. There’ll be six more. I wonder how much the world will change between now and then.
