Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2006 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

BoogaBooga pointed us to its September 2001 archive to remind us of how it felt and what we thought during the month of that tragedy. I couldn't believe that it was five years ago that Wikipedia and The Daily Show weren't part of my daily media environment, or BoingBoing's.

Jon Stewart, host of the hilarious "Daily Show,".....

Check out Wikipedia! It's an "open" encyclopedia....

On a day-to-day basis, Google and Wikipedia change the way I think about my life and the world. I no longer feel constrained by knowing nothing about a domain; I feel confident of getting an overview of anything whenever I might need it. That's something I should mention this Friday.
