Believe it or not, Groklaw is seven years old today. It just *feels* like seventy.
Here's how we began [except for some early articles and drafts I deleted when Groklaw was young and so was I, back when I had no idea Groklaw would become Groklaw], and here's the very first article about SCO, SCO Falls Downstairs, Hitting its Head on Every Step. Heh heh.
I'd say we've met all the goals we set for ourselves, and
more. And no, it wasn't easy or even
always pleasant. But it's been soooo much fun too. There is nothing in the world, in my experience, as creatively satisfying as trying to do something no one has tried to do before and having it actually work. Our hope was that geeks could help lawyers understand the tech better, and vice versa. And it has happened.
Thank you to all of you for contributing your skills and knowledge all this time. I am being absolutely truthful when I say that Groklaw wouldn't be the same without you. And, I hope, vice versa.
