Five years ago today: "We just launched a cool new tool at Pyra. It's called Blogger. It's an automated weblog publishing tool."
I wish I'd have said something more visionary, like, "It's going to be huge, I tell's ya! In five years, Google's* going to own it! And even the president will have a 'blog.'"
* You know, Google, the up-and-coming search engine without the portal. Yeah, they're going to be huge, too!
Here's what it looked like back then. Pretty, huh? It was literally running on a desktop machine, under my desk.
That means I've been working on Blogger for over 15% of my life.
