Paul Simon performed “The Sound of Silence” during the ceremonies marking the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Here’s the mp3 for you, courtesy of NPR but all tagged by me and ready to go.
That’s right! Today is the 8th anniversary of The MKX®, the premiere destination for all things inconsequential. Man, time really flies. People that weren’t yet born when we published our first post are now of reading age.
It took Google less than eight years to become a multi-million dollar business, and it is now apparent that we are growing at a slower pace. Our financial experts predict we will hit the figure in no less than eight and a half years. So be it.
Thank you for your continued support. And Happy New Year!
How things have changed since then: Barack Obama hadn’t been born. Arnold Schwarzenegger was still in good shape. Michael Jackson was already white. Monterrey had only one championship under its belt. Global warming was well underway but did not scare anyone yet. I’m glad to report that the world has changed and out 706 posts have been the ones driving these changes.
Think about it: Kids that weren’t even born back when we started blogging are now old enough to read this junk and have their little malleable brains rot. For their sake we hope their parents have the good sense of not letting them read The MKX®. To everyone else (that’s you): Thanks for reading!
Photos from the party will be posted soon. Oh, and happy 2010.
To celebrate the birth of the Macintosh, exactly 25 years ago, I present to you a leaked screenshot I acquired of the next version of Mac OS X: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Happy birthday!
