About 10 years of first online-diary

Posted by tanja on April 18, 2007

We say “about”  ten years, because actually a date which can certify the birth of blog does not exist. And, therefore, neither a true anniversary you allow us to celebrate a tenth anniversary does not exist.

There are many, more in USA who  try to define what with exactness has been the first true and real blog, that is the first diary online and the form of a blog has taken. Some have identified date first of  april 1997, when Dave Winer threw Sripting News, www.scripting.com blog which anchors today continues with honour his activity. Others think that the first has been John Barger and it started putting his comments on Wisdom Robot, www.robotwisdom.com  on December 17th, 1997. But other think that everything is still begun before, as New York Times points out, that the father www.links.net/vita/web/start defines Justin Hall founder of the personal blogging, begun to his say in 1994.

Then, it is not interesting, all added, to know whether there is a date, because actually blogging structured about the end some years ninety, but in some way he has always existed. Since the beginning the personal pages were at the end some diaries, the forums were some collective debate spaces, bulletin board and the Fidonet were even existing before someone tried to imagine World Wide Web. Therefore it would be quietly possible to say that precursors of blog have arisen before the net itself.
