I’m trying out a new idea. If Twitter is mirco-blogging, then blogging is, well, macro-blogging?
I come across lots of stuff I think is interesting and worth discussing, but not quite full-post-worthy. So, to combat my blogger’s block, I give you mini-blogging.
It’s not quite micro in size, but smaller and probably less well-formed (if that’s possible) than my regular blogging.
Without further ado, here’s one that will appeal to nostalgic nerd in all (erm most) of us.
Ah yes, nothing like a look back in time to get your juices flowing. I had a few reactions to this list, in no particular order:
- ZMOG, how can AOL still be #4 on the April 2009 list and still have 104 million uniques in a month?
- I’m sorry to see GeoCities shuttered.
- I remember Excite fondly, watched it go down in flames.
- Somehow sending e-cards with Blue Mountain seems very 1999.
- It’s good to see Amazon still in the mix ten years later.
- Number one on the 1999 list barely makes the top 15 in 2009.
Maybe I don’t run with the right crew, but are you surprised that AOL still commands 104 million unique visitors each month?
Ten years seems like a long time. Excluding acquisitions, only four of the top 15 from ten years ago still rank in the top 15 now: AOL, Microsoft, Yahoo and Amazon.
Who will be in the 2019 top 15?
Check out the list and sound off here about your thoughts.
