10 Years Ago Today

Note: I’m leaving the graphics in, even though they keep screwing up the formatting, because I think a person’s Twitter photo is a big part of their “personality”.

The subject line of Tuesday afternoon’s HARO email was called “10 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:

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.

Oh yeah, and drinking an awful lot of hairy buffalo and Milwaukee’s Best Light. I was classy!
