Personal websites are so ten years ago

by Chris on May 13, 2008

I’ve been sitting on this domain for almost six years, using it for little besides e-mail. Often I’d think about creating a web site about some of the people named Chris Miller or some sort of parody non-profit association poking fun at how common a name it is. While it sounded like fun, I never found the time, and it probably would not have been useful or funny when finally finished.

So, what did I do? I made nothing but a mundane personal web site about myself, just like everyone and their uncle did in 1998–99. Could it ever be more than just this? Will I ever add any unique, one-of-kind content? Will I keep it updated? The answer’s probably, “No.” Next year, maybe? Don’t count on it. Perhaps you’ll see something different in 2018, when personal web sites could once again be as fashionable as Facebook and Twitter are in 2008.
