History

I started blogging in 1993, unwittingly, with Travels with Samantha. This was distributed via email and static HTML pages with scanned-to-PhotoCD slides.

In 2003, blogging and blog-technology pioneer Dave Winer came to Harvard Law School and I was invited to set up a blog on his Radio UserLand-powered system hosted by Harvard.

The blog was moved here to my personal site in 2018.

  1. I have just this morning come across your article on why it is rational for some whites to resent jewish attitudes towards open borders, immigration, and jewish attitudes towards them. Wow! I confess to finding such self-awareness as rare among Jews as it is rare everywhere else. Bravo!

  2. Hi Phil,
    I have been reading your writings for many years and am a huge fan of your pioneering work in the area of building online communities, much before rest of the world woke up to it.

    Just had a question and appreciate your thoughts (more, the better): What would a “Software Engineering for Internet Applications” look like today?

    In someways, lot of advice about the kind of applications still holds (internet based, database backed and multi-user). At the same time, many things changed as well — Mobile as the end point device and non-browser based applications as the way to access them. I was wondering what is your vision of the prototypical application in the years to come, for the students.

    Thanks for your time. Take care and stay safe (#covid-19).

    Thanks,
    Charan
