While converting my old blog entries I came across a couple of ‘starting a new blog’ entries. From May 2003 to December 2004 I maintained a micro-blog in a wiki page. On July 19, 2005 I started a blogger.com blog (which is still online). That was followed up on January 1, 2007 by an installation of a Serendipity installation at a hosting provider. When that died in late 2010, I decided to write my own. It took a couple of months before that happened, but on April 7, 2011 I launched my new WebDSL based blog.
For all the hype on the cloud, I’m very happy that I now have full control over data and software.
