Wow, I was just looking on eBay and I discovered that I’ve been a member since December 6, 1998. Curious about some other sites that I’m a member of, I found that I joined MetaFilter on June 6, 2000, used Blogger since March 2000, and placed my first order at Amazon on August 17, 1998. I’m just saying.
Another blast from the past: here’s what my site looked like in May 2001. I had had the site for perhaps two or three years prior to that, but it apparently didn’t rank enough for Archive.org to index it. I guess it’s pretty clear that I love the colors blue and yellow together.
