Three Years Old
iWalt.com is three years old today. This may make you say, “What’s with the ‘1995-2002’ claim in the footer?” Well, I’ve been learning how to code and publish websites since I started college, and iWalt.com wouldn’t have come into being if not for the indefatigable walt.homepage.
Later today, if there’s time, we’ll put up a new feature. For now, here’s the original iWalt.com kick-off letter:
“On September 1st, the writer/producer/creator and star of walt.homepage is primed to deliver a World Wide Web experience so awash in narcissistic Waltiness, his family, friends, and the internet at large may never recover. The project, nearly four years in the making, utilizing hundreds of man-hours of preparation and drawing on a plethora of publishing disciplines will finally be unmasked this fall with the premiere of …
“… wait for it … iWalt.com!
“Yes, it’s horrifyingly self-centered and egotistical but disturbingly real. Finally, a complete informational source on the man, from the man. Photographs! Soundbites! Interactive multimedia projects! Every quantifiable piece of knowable human data digitized and electronically published for the globe’s consumption right down to the latest bowel movement. (Maybe not that much information.)
“They said it couldn’t be done, they said it shouldn’t be done, they said they wouldn’t speak to him for a while if he did it … he wasn’t paying attention.
“On September 1st, the World Wide Web is going to get a whole lot Waltier!”
I think we’ve done a pretty good job of sticking to our mission statement.
