    Following up on the following up of websandiego’s shutdown: Dear Yahoo Group Moderators and Members, We recently announced that groups.yahoo.com (Yahoo Groups) and its list service will shut down on December 15, 2020. We would like to clarify that there will be no changes to other Yahoo properties or services. For example, your Yahoo account…
  • Email of the day: Announcing the Shut Down of Yahoo Groups
    Following up on websandiego’s shutdown: Dear Yahoo Group Moderators and Members, We launched Yahoo Groups 20 years ago to connect people around their shared interests. We helped our users navigate new towns, keep in touch with college friends, learn new skills, and most importantly, build connections they may have lost or never had in the…
  • Yahoo Groups – goodbye.
    For some reason I failed to post this in December. Grumble. Sorry. Dear Group Moderators and Members, Thank you for your commitment to Yahoo and for helping us define the power of digital communities. Eighteen years ago, we combined the functionality of a site called eGroups.com with a precursor community platform called Yahoo Clubs to…
  • WebSanDiego’s 3rd Birthday
    All this looking backward means sometimes I’ll be looking at ancient stuff. Here’s something from 2002. From Charles’ website: WEBSANDIEGO BIRTHDAY (that’s an Internet Archive Wayback Machine page):
  • WebSanDiego Mailing List Visualization
    So I’m back in San Diego. And part of my identity when I lived here was starting and cultivating the websandiego mailing list. It started on ONElist, and they were bought by eGroups, and eventually Yahoo! where it is now. It all started in March of 1999. We’ve moved from Usenet and Friendster to MySpace,…
  • WebSanDiego Movie Night, 2001
    Way back when, as a group, WebSanDiego, or at least parts of it, went to see Startup.com at the Ken Cinemar. That was fun. I think that was the first time I met Pinguino in person! I made this graphic as part of a promotional page for the event. I think it still looks pretty…
  • 9 Days Away: March Mingle
    March Mingle will be on the 10th. It should be great. More at SDCFUG.org. We’d like to make this a technology agnostic event that brings together developers of all kinds, a sort of annual “Technology Woodstock” or “Ultimate Geek Happy Hour” for San Diego. To this end, we have gathered together a few sponsors and…
  • The outer edges of my music collection
    Still importing tonight. Latest imports include Digable Planets, Neneh Cherry, Motorhead, Mono Puff, Miles Davis, Bud Powell, more Tom Waits, and a lot of Mighty Might Bosstones. Good day today. Productive work. I went to a used bookstore today and appreciated some old books on typography. Wandering and enjoying the phenomenon of downtown San Diego….
  • Sometimes, I’m List Founder
    Hello my fellow WebSanDiegans: This is a little long, and a bit out of character. I usually respond to posts on-list and let them fly. But I feel like I have a bit more to say, so as your host, I’d like to say some things about community and about behavior. WebSanDiego.org has always distinguished…
  • Radio Followup — Email | Phone | Web
    Got a bunch of little notes during and after the radio show last night. Let’s attempt to address them, shall we? Matt Haughey thought it was pretty cool, a high compliment considering he’s the Philosopher King of Metafilter (and a nice guy too). And about the question of whether I am the real me in…
