This reminds me of something that I did this morning...
October 2003 is the only snapshot that the Web Archive has of Groklaw. Some
interesting changes can be observed, e.g. IANAL at present versus "I am a
paralegal, so if you have a legal problem and want advice, this isn't the
place. Hire an attorney instead. Research is, however, what paras do, so
here I am sharing things I have found in my research."
Judging by the comment count, the site gained popularity (or notoriety to
McBride and co.) quite early on. Another item that I read:
,----[ Quote ]
| "I (PJ) started my blog just before the SCO case was filed. Originally,
| my purpose was just trying to learn how to blog, because an attorney and
| I were discussing the possibility of me doing some telecommuting work
| for him, including work on his blog."
The rest if history.
