I rarely get interview requests anymore, and usually when I do, it’s because people want to hear about Evan Williams. If you haven’t read this site since 1999, maybe you don’t know that he and I co-founded Blogger together, and that he went on to co-found Twitter. Anyway, last summer I talked to Bloomberg about Ev for a program called “Game Changers”. But there’s quite a bit about the early Blogger days in the show, including some old video footage of us in our offices (and me with short platinum blonde hair!) and some old photos. It was neat to see, and made me kinda sad. Bonus for viewing: you can hear me talk about Ev, kinda like those “Behind the Music” shows where some old band mate no one remembers talks about the guy who went on to become the huge star.
Yikes! I embedded the video and it’s auto-playing. So here’s the link to watch if you’re interested: Bloomberg Game Changers: Twitter.

Oh this was fun to watch. My first blog was with Blogger way back in 1999 and I’ve been a Megnut reader since then, too. Fun trip down memory lane…seems like a lifetime ago.
I remember how much I enjoyed reading your weblog in those days, and how I was rooting for Pyra and Blogger.com. And I remember a lot of orange and blue.
