Stumble Upon

I like the way the internet is maturing. I have been using the internet since 1994 - it's so full up now it's practically impossible to find interesting things just by surfing. That's why I like community-based systems like 43 things. Recently I started using Stumble Upon to check out stuff.

I just found this cool thing called Internet Archive Wayback Machine that holds archives of webpages going back to 1996. I started to surf.. and I found what I was doing 8 years ago.

Oh the thrill of finding my old web sites once again. It doesn't all work on modern browser.. but it's wonderful moment of nostalgia for an old internet freak like me. Hey - I was a pioneer once !

Nostalgia? Or embarrassment? Maybe I'm just very critical of past work.

I don't get to "nostalge" much.. Fact is, nobody was doing anything cultural or even remotely interesting at the time... no animated gifs, embedding movies, or attempts to make the form anything other than lists referring to other lists.. certainly no live events or journalism !
