I may have let this latest anniversary slip, because I'm not around to be reminded by the annual Ramble at Fairchild Tropical Garden this year; but I started a version of this blog (although it was not blog format) in November of 2000. That's five years, folks! Among the first stories it discussed, the Florida vote debacle in the presidential election debacle that year.

Unfortunately, the archive of that blog is lost behind Earthlink's 'site not available' notice which didn't go away this month as it should have; there can't be THAT much traffic to the site. I've begun moving files to another Earthlink account but haven't gotten very far yet.

If you want to see what the site looked like a year ago (the static research files didn't change much after that) the most recent version available at the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine has the pages online:

The original site was at a different address, but that's archived too: The first version archived was February 2001, not far off (although the copy comes up dated April, but it does contain Election 2000 news).


  • Happy blogiversary, if I may use that abomination of a word. I started Hidden City's journal version in July 2000, which makes both sites about 500 years old in blog-years.

  • Many congratulations on this milestone i.e. the 5th anniversary of News Research, and continued good luck and good health to you.
    I suppose everybody enjoys reading nice views of a veteran journalist on Journalism, Internet and Media... :)
