Goodbye old websiteWork on creating this website began some time in June of 2004 and it was completed and launched for the public in October of 2004. We decided that rather than join the other social media websites at the time that we should carve out our own home on the internet that we could call ours.
At the time Friendster was two years old and going strong. In fact, Google offered to buy them for $30 million in 2003. Myspace was one year old and was later acquired in July 2005 for $580 million.
I think we made the right decision.
The site has been sorely in need of an overhaul for a while and I'm happy that day is finally upon us. You've served us well, but it is time to move on. I, for one, welcome our new website overlord.
