Wednesday Photo Nights #6 : on the Wayback Machine …

There is nothing that makes you feel old, like watching snapshots of your website from the last 10 years. For any site developer, blogger or just random bored web junkie, the Wayback Machine, is an awesome repository to track your own web journey.

Here is the first version of my site on a Geocities page …with transcribed lecture notes from Human Motivation (PSYC 471) and all the notes are still online 14 years later … I’m sure the Richard Koestner still teaches the exact same lecture. It’s kinda crazy seeing things I wrote 13 years ago, along with my liquor page.

Then having that site evolve into the first version of the self hosted version in 2003 … with image splash page and javascript icons.

Then the next version was moving to more information oriented layout in 2005, with tons of links and icons, while still trying to maintain a tighter structure to the page. The best thing I remember was the Doctor Gos column by my friend in Scotland – it is some funny shit!

Then finally moving to the wordpress platform and thereby changing the site into a blog and moving all the photo galleries to the photoblog in 2009.

For those of you who are bloggers, how has your journey in writing and the interweb changed over the last couple years? The fact that I can track my journey over the last 13 years, is a bit creepy but cool at the same time. – especially since I know I’ll never have a career in politics!!
