15 Years Ago

This is a response to Daniel's post.

Let's see how much I can remember.

This domain, islandinthenet.com, is about 11 years old, but I've been blogging since before 2003. I moved my blog from Blogger. Com to Tumblr.com to WordPress.com to Posterous. I mapped each one to a domain, khurt. com. That was 14 years seven months ago.

In 2006 I registered the islandinthenet.com domain and started blogging there. I then moved most of my existing content to a self-hosted WordPress installation. I also wrote the environment khurtwilliams.com ten years and six months ago. I don't think I renewed it. I also owned the honeysweet.us and williamsinteractive.com domains at one point.

Fifteen years ago, I took a full-time role as Senior Advisor in the Information Security practice of Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Fifteen years ago, I was still shooting with a Sony Cybershot, my first digital camera, which I bought in 1999.

Fifteen years ago, the trees in my neighbourhood were as short as a pre-schooler.
