I dug this photo up in my archive. It’s a photo taken in April of 2002 at my former apartment where I had the brilliant idea 12 years ago to start a website. This was before the term “blog” was mainstream and before I even had a smartphone. This was also the time when having a desk meant sacrificing half of it to your monitor. Life sure was weird back then. Look at how messy this place was! Man, it’s incredible I did anything here at all.

Anyway, happy 12th birthday to this domain which I will own for next 100 years.
