In December, 2000 I started my Scobleizer blog.
Damn, thinking about how much the world has changed since then. (I also posted this to Facebook here).
Back then there was:
No Twitter. Or Google+. Or Quora.
No Uber. Or Lyft.
No iPhone. Or iPads. Heck, even the iPod hadn’t been invented yet.
No self driving cars.
No Google Maps.
No Spotify. Or Soundcloud.
No Google Glass.
No Y Combinator. Or Techstars. Or Geekdom.
No AWS. Or OpenStack. Or Azure.
No Skype. Or Hangouts.
No Apple Stores.
No Periscope. Or HangW/. Or Meerkat. Or, even, Qik or Kyte, which are gone now.
No Pebble. Fitbit. Or Apple Watch.
No Tesla. Or Hybrid cars. Or electric cars.
I can’t remember how we survived back then.
If I live another 15 years, what will we see?
Maybe I should fire up my blog again. I was thinking of doing that as a repository of my newsletter. http://www.scobleizer.com
Oh, and thanks to Dori Smith and Dave Winer. The two of them convinced me to start a blog (they were speakers at a conference I was helping plan back then, working for Dan Shafer). I thought blogging wasn’t important enough to add a session about it to our conference. Now there are conferences on blogging, even a famous one just for women bloggers. But they got me to start and Dave’s blog at http://www.scripting.com is still at the top of my reading list.
