Posting so many old headlines and snippets of things that caught my interest up to five years ago shows how much we thought we knew but didn’t and how much we thought would change.
Many of these posts were before Twitter and Facebook’s wholesale adoption. It was the promise of Web 2.0 before the collapse of finance markets. It was a time when we were five years younger and had a little less experience and perspective.
This started as project to clean up some digital closets and drawers.
I could have tossed those old links and bookmarks, but now it’s an interesting time capsule for me. The current version of those for me now are the Twitter Weekly Updates.
