prehistory

Jorn Barger’s weblog FAQ was dealing with stuff that was a few years old in 1999. It looks dated now, but it’s nice to read things like this:

“A weblog (sometimes called a blog or a newspage or a filter) is a webpage where a weblogger (sometimes called a blogger, or a pre-surfer) ‘logs’ all the other webpages she finds interesting. The format is normally to add the newest entry at the top of the page, so that repeat visitors can catch up by simply reading down the page until they reach a link they saw on their last visit.”

Simple sounds sort of pleasant.
