It seems that I started to keep log files in early 1998, or anyhow I can't locate any that have the dated-entry form before that time. I do have spiral-bound notebooks in which I recorded progress in Web development, and heaps of folders with dated notes in them, and of course I have many years of handwritten journal entries, but it looks like my computer-based proto-blogging activity began with a page tracing the development of a collaboration among Library, Media Center, and Larry Hurd. Before that time I seem not to have dated Web pages I produced (and there were many...).
The exercise of arraying log files in chronological order, and the display by timespan of logs, tells me some things I didn't already know about my own processes and history of changinig interests. The logs themselves (which are hyperlinked via the buttons and bars) are surely full of dead links (some of which can be recovered, either via the Wayback Machine or by changing wlu.edu URLs to oook.info), but the texts can be seen as narratives of my exploration. That's mostly of interest to myself, and perhaps reveals more dead ends and blind alleys than breakthroughs to New Dawns.
The blog activity (oook blog) began in March 2004, when I set up Movable Type in my own domain, and continues fitfully. I have linked the archives here just to make them a bit more accessible.
