But tilt the picture just a bit. On Jan. 1, 2000, there was no Huffington Post or Daily Kos or National Review Online or Politico or Facebook or Twitter. There were a relative handful of bloggers — I joined their ranks that summer — but nothing like the tens of millions who permeate cyberspace today. If you had a BlackBerry, it was a two-way pager. The iPhone was but a glimmer in Steve Jobs’s eye. The only mass medium for downloading music was six-month-old Napster. The fledgling Google was covered mainly by tech writers.
Just for the record, there was a National Review Online in January of 2000. I know, because I was there.
