Tempus fugit et cetera, it’s 17 years ago to the day that I registered the sciencebase.com domain. Although my long-standing and long-sffuering readers will know that its predecessor, the first proto chemistry webzine, blog, “Elemental Discoveries” had existed since late 1995 on various servers, including for a few years as the guest news section for Cambridge Soft, the people who created ChemDraw.
My web Independence Day was, like I say, 20th July 1999.
That site has gone through many changes and is still riding the cybersea despite and perhaps because of the advent of web 2.0, social media and all that. So, no longer sweet sixteen and not quite at the age of majority and still four years before we get the key to the door…
Happy Birthday, my website ;-) Hah!
