At The Birth Of Blogging

Ten years ago the word “blog” had just been invented. I’d heard the term but didn’t apply it to my own activities which were, now that I think of it, “blogging” on comic book news for the web site, THE SPLASH. They didn’t have blog software in those days but I had a primitive set of fields Steve Conley created for me that I had to laboriously cut and paste headlines and stories into. Here’s an interview with me right about that time; 2001 to be precise. The COMICS JOURNAL’s Mike Dean and I are discussing what the internet was and where it might be going. It’s fun to see what I had wrong and what I had right.

I’ll be running the whole thing in bite sized bits over the next few days.
