September 28, 2023: Today's Illuminated Musing

The other day I sang the praises of USBs, noting the first version of this long-lived format hit the market in general popularity in August 1998 – over 25 years ago.

As I was posting this to the Daily Illuminator, I realized something really cool that was even older than that: the Daily Illuminator itself.

The first posts were in November 1994 (November 16, to be precise). As far as we know (and trumpet on the archive page), it's the oldest continuously running blog on the net. And, if my math is right, its 30 anniversary should be coming up next year.

Now I need to check with the folks in IT about uploading a cake to celebrate the occasion . . .
