While it's cool to be second in line behind TBL, the stuff I wrote in 1992, and published in Reality 2.0, appeared first on the Web in 1996. That's when Searls.com hit the Web. (Might have been '95, but just to be sure I'll say '96.) It was into Reality 2.0 that I dumped a bunch of essays that had gone unpublished before that time. Also, I was inspired, and led, by Dave Winer's DaveNet, which began in 1994.

A wiki is a great idea. I think the format would lend itself particularly well to a project of this nature. Be happy to help, if you need it - I've done a fair amount of playing around with the MediaWiki software and SocialText's stuff. Actually, this is precisely the kind of project Ross & Adina at SocialText would probably be interested in getting behind - so it might be worth giving them a ping.

danah boyd has been doing some terrific work, pulling together a "social networking timeline" using wiki software, here. Worth a look.

Also - I realised you'd pulled the list together fast, and hope I didn't come across as too critical in suggesting my additional links. Much easier to criticize than to create, and what you've started to create here is genuinely useful and good.

Thanks again.

Michaelo: Thanks so much for the input.

Yes, I know that I left out many vital items, but I used the Meatball Wiki as a guide, and now I can't even find that page, so I'm glad I printed it out.

This was just a hurried attempt to slap something together. I was wanting to transfer the project to my JotSpot wiki, but I let it languish too long, and now, since Google bought JotSpot, I can't get into my own wiki and they aren't accepting new accounts.

But I think a wiki would be the way to go with this Blog History Timeline. I should check out Wikipedia also, to see what they have lately.

Interesting list, Vaspers - you've covered a lot of the most significant milestones.

A few suggestions:

- you might want to include Chris Locke's blog. Entropy Gradient Reversals (EGR) was an e-zine long before it was a blog, but I think the first thing you could call a blog post went up onto the EGR site around July 2000. Chris inspired A LOT of people to start blogging when I sent this note to his EGR email list.

- ditto David Weinberger, whose first post was November 20, 1999 or November 15, 2001 - depending on one's POV. More (here)

- I'd have been tempted to include the launch of BoingBoing (Jan or Feb 2000, at a guess).

- might be worth pointing to some of the early blog search/meme-tracking engines (Blogdex, Daypop, etc.)

- Oh, and I'd definitely have included that day in Feb 2003 when Google acquired Blogger - that was intense.

If I think of any more, I'll let you know. Thanks for building this timeline project. V. cool.

Cameron: thank you for the clarification, and I will make the correction now.

I certainly appreciate you, a pioneer blogger, coming here to comment.

I truly respect and admire you early bloggers, for the Blog Revolution is a huge transformation of human expression, communication, and social networking...a massive seachange of an order of magnitude, as the scientists say.

My blog (camworld.com) started on June 11, 1997. It lived under the cambarrett.com domain until late August 1997 when I registered camworld.com and used that as my peronal brand.

Thanks Biz. I truly love "Who Let the Blogs Out" and think it's probably the most important book on blogging that has ever come out.

Love the Blogger Buzz site too.

Was not aware that you were involved with Xanga.

Here's a couple more from my perspective:

November 1999 - Marc Ginsburg, John Hiler, Biz Stone, and others launch Xanga.com

September 2002 - Biz Stone, book: "Blogging Genius Strategies for Instant Web Content"

Thanks!

Hey, I'm (Vaspers the) Grateful for you too!

For what it's worth, I did not blog, as a blogger, on actual blogware, until Fall of 1999.

And Dave Winer gets all the credit for making that happen.

And I get much of the credit for dragging my ass for months before that, so blogging failed to make it into The Cluetrain Manifesto, which it should have. (We wrote the book in Summer of 1999.)

Also for what it's worth, many online writers were doing something like blogging long before blogging came along.

Dave's DaveNet went out to a mailing list -- and up on the Web as well -- since the Early 90s.

My own online essays in Reality 2.0 go back to '92, with Time to Grow Up. (Although other essays there go back as far as 1986.)

Anyway, thanks to other bloggers (you for instance), it's never stopped being a fun ride
