Happy 12th birthday, jaced.com

Where does the time go? It was a dozen years ago today that I hopped on over to (what is now Network Solutions) Internic.net and grabbed this domain. In no particular order, here are 12 notable things that happened in 1998:

  1. Google was founded.
  2. Apple unveiled the iMac.
  3. Microsoft released Windows 98.
  4. United States Department of Justice (DOJ) brought Anti-Trust Case against Microsoft Corp.
  5. E-commerce began.
  6. 19 European nations agreed to forbid human cloning.
  7. Elton John was knighted.
  8. Frank Sinatra died.
  9. Nobody could get that Titanic song out of their head.
  10. McGwire and Sosa’s homerun chase. Yankees went on to sweep the Padres in the World Series.
  11. “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”
  12. We shuddered at Saving Private Ryan and cried at Life is Beautiful. (Both went on to be beaten out for Best Picture by… Shakespeare in Love?!)
