It’s taken 2 weeks to import 1000 posts; just finished jan-2008 today. Been fixing flickr and youtube embeds to html5 so they can be viewed without flash.
Funny to skim through the old posts to see how quickly some topics become out-of-date. These are all from jan-2008:
- buy a new ipod or not
- steve jobs introduces the world to the macbook air
- AOL drops support for netscape
- there was a delete your myspace account day
Then again, some things never change:
- chemistry is cool and gorgeous
- so important to hire the right person — the intern we hired in 2008 is still with our old company and is now VP in the Technology dept
- stress is bad for health
including what Jason Kottke calls the editorial direction of the website:
Just over 4 years to go, to backtrack to sep-2003. Beyond late 2007, it’s not one post a day, so hopefully I can push through the months quicker.
