Way Back Machine

| blogging |

Every once in a while I like to go and read some blogs of note of past.. it is very interesting to view them from a historical point of view. It was not so long ago that blogs didn’t even exist.. many of the ones that were listed in the past are no longer active or even available for browsing.

Using the Internet Archives Way Back Machine you can get a snapshot of what the site may have looked like a long time ago.

A lot of sites are hard to find and are not archived, but every once in a while you find a gem. This was one of the early Jan 2001 blog of note .. “Whats in Tom’s Palm Piliot” (The fact that a palm pilot is even mentioned is interesting enough because I personally do not know a single individual who uses one anymore. )

This is all the archive had:

I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate. It is, after all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all. - Leo C. Rosten

I don’t know why, but it is a very profound quote and I glad I found it. Now just need to figure out who Leo Rosten is.. :/

Thank you for reading! Share your thoughts with me on mastodon or via email.
