Internet time travel: before Nick Denton…

I’m cleaning out the paper in my life and came across notes from my Internet Roast at SXSW 2000.

An email newsletter! Printed out! With exclamation marks! When I was working at start-up! with CEO!

Before Nick Denton and Valleywag, Michael Tchong’s newsletter Jacobyte offered an item about Seth Godin’s start-up before he was on book covers and 10,000 smackeroos for proof that you’d slept with a senior Internet exec. 

Oh those balloon and ahi tuna- filled times when Time-Warner giving out Palm pilots to launch a, ahem, print magazine about the Internet.

Today, Nick might make you pay him to run the photos of your tryst.
