Farewell Digital Doodles - Mark 2

Old Site GraphicFor a very long time a portion of this site's content still existed on Digital Doodles - Mark 2.

Mark 2?

Digital Doodles - Mark 1 was a static website started sometime before May 2001. I maintained it by hand and later with Dreamweaver.

The Digital Doodles - Mark 2 era began in July 2004 when the site graduated to scripted goodness in July 2004: Farewell Tedious Toil, Hello Automation!. Mark 2 lasted two years.

In July 2006 I started using Drupal and Digital Doodles - Mark 3 was born: 2 Steps Forward, 1 Step Back. Sadly, some content remained behind in the old site until today. It's only been 2 1/2 years!

It's been quite nostalgic reviewing the old content. Although I'd been playing with the site before 2001, my first blog post was May 2001. It took a while for me to warm up to this "web log" thing. And my posting inconsistency goes back to the beginning, too. Which is a kind of consistency. Thankfully there's RSS to bring some relief to my poor followers.

Digital Doodles has been a valuable learning tool but I've been lack luster at content. This is, in large part, because my vision of what Digital Doodles should be has changed over time. Lately my vision of what Digital Doodles should be has come into focus. Not sure why now, and it doesn't really matter. The integration of all the old "Mark 2" content and retiring of the "Old Site" graphic signals the start of implementing this new vision. Just hope I don't run out of steam before I'm done!
