1. Me too. Exactly the same day.

I saw the hand held sign on CNN all those years ago.

Learned so much here. It changed my life.

14. Apparently many wanderers found home safe haven from that tempest here.

Couldn't have foreseen today's season back then though it did open eyes to possibilities barely within the realms of imagination.

6. BartCop sent us here, several incarnations ago.

Most thankful for the community. And yes, what a long, wild ride it has been. Probably going to get much wilder. Hang on everyone.

8. I saw an ad for DU on some punk site.

I think it was part of the Media Whores Online group back then.

I love you all.

11. I was sorry to see mediawhores.com

retire. We needed them then & Now!

I didn't even have a computer.. I saw DU talked about in a Nation mag article on alternative news sources, I bought in NYC, when we went to celebrate New Years Eve in 2001.

I got a Desk Top for DU and joined in late Sept 2002.

Aloha, Josh!
