Ten Year Anniversary

I’m pretty proud to say that this site has been around now for at least decade, in some form or fashion. The first post published on the site, the default WordPress Hello World post with some additions, was published on August 1, 2006. This was about the time I first started experimenting with self publishing online and web development, which lead to the formation of two awesome side businesses. Neither of those would have been possible if I hadn’t learned the framework of the internet, like servers, HTML, CSS, PHP, and MySQL, while teaching myself to develop WordPress websites. This experimentation has lead to countless opportunities, both professional and personal.

And while my posting has steadily diminished over the last few years (due to both professional reasons and family obligations, which I hope to detail in the near future in this space), I’m pretty proud of this accomplishment.

So, here’s to another ten years! I can’t wait to see what this space looks like then.

PS- Here’s what the site looked like back in 2007:

More from Medium on Gov Tech

Medium is posting even more about government tech. After the post about the “Alpha Geeks” in the White House Chief Technology Officer’s office, they’ve followed up with one on the people behind the US Digital Service (titled Stock Options? Don’t Need ‘Em! I’m Coding For Uncle Sam!) and another on how they’re working (A Government Techie’s Promise on Improving the Immigration User Experience: Yes, We’re Serious).

Like I said, Medium is on fire recently. Also, I love their signup and login process (no passwords)!
