Tales of a software engineer who keeps kosher and hates the web.

Usenet posts from 1993

At lunch today with Mike and David, we were talking about Google and whether the Pyra acquisition would be as successful as the Deja News acquisition. Both Mike and I had read somewhere that Google had managed to get Usenet archives going way back to the beginning, and how it’s become such a valuable historical resource.

So just for kicks, I went and searched Google Groups for author:mradwin@tsoft.net and found 15 posts, all from 1993.

They’re all related to desktop publishing. I used to love fonts. And you can see that I was interested in intellectual property ten years ago, even though I couldn’t spell.

What a trip!
