In March 2007, I published my first blog post.
Unimaginatively, it was titled First Post.
Since then, a lot has changed. To celebrate this milestone, allow me to recap some significant personal and professional events, then and now.
|Then (2007)||Now (2017)|
|Blogging with Plone (via add-ons or core)||Blogging with Sphinx (via ablog). In between: Wordpress, Pelican.|
|Left NIH (2005) to be self-employed.||Still self-employed, but back at NIH too.|
|Using irssi for IRC.||In The Lounge. In between: WeeChat.|
|Engaged but not married.||About to celebrate 10 years of marriage in November 2017.|
|Conference-hosting virgin.||Proud veteran organizer of Plone Conference 2008.|
|Three years before Pillow, my Python Imaging Library fork, was born in 2010.||Pillow included in major Linux distributions and downloaded over 15 million times.|
|Four years before vanity, my download statistics tool, was born in 2011.||Vanity waiting for Warehouse.|
|Five years before my busiest blogging year ever, 35 posts in 2012.||Averaging 15 posts per year.|
|Six years before plock made noise in 2013.||Pip installs plock. Plock installs Plone.|
|10 years before this post.||This post!|
Thanks for reading; see you in 10 years for another retrospective.
