1997 on Twitter

1997 on Twitter, originally uploaded by Jrome.

Evan Williams twittered what he was up to in 1997. A pivotal (I guess) move to the Bay Area and to his future. I noticed Chris Messina's twitter somehow and followed it (@ev) back to Evan's original.

Intrigued by the process, I thought back. It was hard to condense in 140 characters what happened to me in 1997.

I had to leave out a lot... I decided to go back to CO for my final year of grad school as I sat beside my father's hospital bed, a bed he would never leave.

1997 was a pivotal year for me. Remarkable what a little twitter post could stir up. Check it out for yourself:

Update: Ev twittered about how many people recalled 1997...
