Continuing the posting of embarrassing relics from my digital life in the 90s, I found this rather conceited render that I did playing around with Bryce 3D around 1997:

And of course... I animated it. Just imagine this with some epic soundtrack playing as you zoom out across the water towards what appear to be a few small islands and then [musical fanfare] my name rises up from the water:

I think I should start posting in reverse-chronological order, blog-style. I might go through and change all my earlier listed items into actual dated posts. I wonder if I can remember when I wrote them. Is that too much revisionist history?

Earlier-posted stuff:

Here's some stuff from my online life in the 90s:

  1. The oldest version of my website that I still have, from 1997. It includes what's basically my photography portfolio from college, and the whole thing makes me cringe today.
  2. The Must-See Movies Checklist I compiled in 1994 with help from a lot of people on rec.arts.movies including IMDb founder Col Needham.
  3. A TIME Magazine article on cyberpunk from 1993 that I saved for some reason.
  4. In 1995 I photocopied this article from New Media magazine on the various writing tools available for web pages (e.g. HoTMetaL, Web Weaver, etc)
  5. Here's the Holiday 1996 edition of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan club newsletter.
  6. When I got my first unix account back in 1994, my University made me sign affirming that I received this ethics and acceptable use pamphlet about responsible use of email, etc.
  7. And in 1995, they established these web server policies.

More to come...
