Happy Birthday You Wonderful Old Domain

I almost forgot to mention that today is the 15th anniversary of schafer.com.

I registered the domain for personal use back in 1996 and it’s had something on it pretty much ever since. It’s been a resume for me, a list of links, a corporate site for while I was self-employeed for many years, and since 2001 it’s had a blog attached to it (my first blog post was July 4th, 2001).

Interestingly enough, and entirely coincidentally, today is also my fourth anniversary on Twitter.

I wonder what the Internet will look like fifteen years from now?

When did you buy your first domain name and what did you do with it when you first started out online?
