Happy New Year. Protozoic has been going for more than 4 years. Seems like a long time, doesn’t it? The Chook website was run, in one manner or another, for a lot of years too. The earliest hit I get for that at Archive.org is August 17th, 2000. Wow. And I know we had an even earlier version than that one for a year or so, but I’m not sure we had the domain name back then.
We also did RSS feeds back then, YEARS before it was mainstream. And (essentially) a RSS-feed enabled blog, in the original Mindlab. I had written a rudimentary RSS feed parser in PHP and a rudimentary blog posting system so Mike could log in and write a post. The post were automatically inserted into the appropriate page and an RSS feed file was written. The main page then read the RSS feed and added the headlines of the new posts to the front page. That was the extent of living on the cutting edge of WWW design. Now we just (happily) use WordPress.

Mama is very proud of her creative boys.
I’m impressed! I hope I can keep mine going for that long. Here’s to a productive 2009!

1) What is Chook?
2) What is RSS?
1) Chook — it was an old site we ran.
2) RSS; i.e. with a new reader you can check to see whenever new comments or new posts go on the site.
hard to believe its been 4 years – only 2 more though – the world ends in 2012
Why does the world end in 2012? If so, I’m eating at KFC, Burger King, and the Hut from now until then.
Well, c’mon. Why does the world end in 2012? Have you been talking to Natalie again?
