THANKS FOR ALL THE FUN
I missed this in the hustle and bustle of the past few days, but last Friday the 15th marked the fourth anniversary of this blog. It's been a long road, and I didn't think this exercise in public communication would last this long.
It started humbly enough, with the following objective outlined in the very first post:
"This blog reflects my personal views and thoughts on topics, mostly about the Internet and Technology and its effects globally, but sometimes about media, the arts, politics, and the goofy, marvelous and always surprising world around us.
It's an experiment, and the blog is likely to have its fits and starts, but I'll try and keep it going and hopefully interesting.
So, welcome to mp.blogs.com. It started as a lark, inspired by Fred Wilson's VC blog with the ultra-cool, and ultra-early avc.blogs.com...Checked out and saw mp.blogs.com was available. Thus, I homesteaded the URL, knowing that the site may lie fallow for a while."
Well, the blog did lay fallow for a year, despite the best of intentions, and I didn't start posting again until a year later, on February 22nd, 2005.
And I haven't stopped posting almost every day since, with over 1,300 posts made in the last three years. Of course you're the best judge of whether that's a good thing or not, but it's been a blast from my perspective.
I've made lots of new friends along the way and become re-acquainted with quite a few more. And it's been helpful both personally and professionally to be able to connect with folks on issues large and small that interest me.
So thank you all for indulging me, and as usual, suggestions on how this whole exercise can be improved upon, are always welcome.
