so kick ass [Mar. 7th, 2002|04:37 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I continue working on my paper for school all about LiveJournal and its history, including my early web work and FreeVote.com and such.

It's crazy how much I'm remembering and putting together after researching dates for dozens of important events and lining them all up.

Props to my mom and Eli and LJ for having so much information available. Hell, I called my mom to ask what I got for presents in Christmas of 1998 and she pulled out her records. "I could tell you what you got in 1989. Wrong file, one sec." Crazy. And sure enough, she confirmed that was the christmas I got the new MS Visual Studio, which fits with my chronology perfectly.

I'm so glad I'm writing this paper... another year or two and it's be impossible to recall all this history.

Yeah. It's getting crazy long, and I've barely started.

Are you going to be publishing the paper when you're done? It'll be an interesting read.

It's actually already online, so my professor can review it weekly.

I'll be publishing the URL when I'm done. It's in a messy state in parts yet.

The self-reference is so tasty here: The whole idea of LJ is so that you can preserve your ideas and history, etc., for future reference, and of course you were obviously the first user (#1 :-) ), so therefore you have the most history preserved, so LJ helps you write a paper about LJ.

Yeah, I know this is all incredibly obvious, but I hadda remark on the beauty.
