10 Years Ago Today
Note: Iâ€™m leaving the graphics in, even though they keep screwing up the formatting, because I think a personâ€™s Twitter photo is a big part of their â€œpersonalityâ€.
The subject line of Tuesday afternoonâ€™s HARO email was called â€œ10 Years Ago Today”. And while I think Peter was referring to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that enacted digital rights management, it made me think.
On October 28, 1998, I was:
- suffering through junior-year public speaking and Core IV (FDU alums feel my pain)
- balancing full-time school with a part-time PR job at Ortho-McNeil (for an amazing group of people)
- babysitting for the pharmacist I’d worked for as a tech (who’s one of my dearest friends, and whose girls are now in or near college themselves)
- dating a guy who smoked, managed a car wash, and adored Pink Floyd (in fairness, that was a long time ago, and he’s very nice)
Point is, I didn’t really know much about anything. Exactly one year later, I was wandering around Rome. And I don’t know if I know a much more about anything, ten years later, but I’ve sure made sure I’ve seen more.
Now check out what Twitter was doing ten years ago today.
