Happy (Blog) Anniversary

I’ve been doing this for 10 years, believe it or not, although I missed my actual anniversary by four days. (You can read my very first blog post, complete with reference to “clueless Ziff-Davis vice-presidents,” here.)

Back in December 2002, I thought I was impossibly late to the blogging party. But it turns out this business actually had some staying power.

I shifted most of my energy over to ZDNet in 2006, but I still keep this place alive and am grateful for every reader and every commenter over the past decade.

  1. Happy anniversary. I once remember reading on a web-page: “What is Ed up to? Come back to find out”. Was it for this blog?

  2. Hi Ed,
    i’v been you reading you since prob the beginning
    I;v enjoyed the blogs & articles very much
    I buy & enjoy your books also
    Keep up the good work

  3. Happy Anniversary, Ed. We the readers are the biggest beneficiaries, and for that, a huge thanks. Pretty much everything you touch is gold to me. Every time I hear Thurrott on Windows Weekly, I just sigh and wish it were you instead. You would be so much better. Paul is nice, has way too much fluff. You are too the point, hard hitting, fact-based, extremely knowledgeable, and your opinions mean a great deal to me.

    I first discovered you when you were a guest on fluff-ville, Computer America, and I have never turned back. I was an instant fan the first time I heard you there. BTW, ever since Carey was pushed out, I quit listening to that show as then it was nearly 100% fluff and commercials and I was upset the way Carey was treated also.

    Anyway, I got derailed, but YOU ARE AWESOME, one of the true rock stars in the Windows world, and actually tech world in general. Keep up the great work, PLEASE!

    Happy New Year to you!
