I took a break from the slower-than-usual day at work to take a look at Internet Archive (web.archive.org), which, as the name implies, archives web content over time. This includes not only sites, but images, scripts, etc. It’s an awesome non-profit project that is perfect if you need to find an extremely old blog post.
For shits and giggles (more giggles), I punched in my old website, ryanpetersonline.com, and immediately was pulled back in time; back to 2006. Everything that was relevant at the time – everything from talking about my first home server to our new (now aging) couch – was there, spanning about 1 years time. After reading through the wide-range of topics I ranted and wrote about, I realized that I sort of miss blogging.
Maybe I’ll get back into it. I’ll start by adding these archived posts to THIS blog. It’ll be funny to pull these up 50 years from now and see what was relevant, assuming the internet is still here and we’re not all floating in cloud (web joke).
