Me! Me! Me!

Hey, what do you know... I've just realized, my first "weblog" started way back, at least as early as Aug 91.

It was called "TV This Week", and "links" to information from Washington Post, TV Guide, etc. I was really into watching television during that period of my life. Well, if I remember correctly, this weekly blog was more facts than opinions, and I really liked shows like "Quantum Leap" and "Simpsons". Oh, and there's not really a World Wide Web. The "weblog" runs on USENET.

Maybe I should start (yet) another TV weblog? Nah...

Take that, Dave Winer! :-)
