This brief chronicle of how Derek Powazek got into blogging (1997) survived being called brain-dead(2000), and went to work for Technorati(2005) is witty and fun.
Guy’s up for a Bloggie. Lifetime achievement.
Shameless plug: I am a Bloggie finalist as well– please vote for me–Best Kept Secret Blog, 3/4 way down the page)–if I win, it will no longer be a secret. (Only site has been down forever.)
