Daily Illuminator

April 15, 2007: World's Longest Running Blog?

Can anybody beat November 1994?

We knew that the Daily Illuminator was one of the very first weblogs - long before the word "weblog," let alone "blog" - but we didn't realize that it's apparently the longest-running one, with daily updates, all still archived, since November 1994.

Derek Pearcy wrote to point out this Cnet article on "Blogs turn 10," which, as commenters pointed out, was at least two years behind the times. And none of the comments document an existing blog older than the Illuminator.

Scary. As Derek said in his own comment to the thread: we didn't think we were doing anything special at the time. Just keeping in touch with the community . . .
