This week marked the ninth birthday of this blog. Here was my first post, on Nov. 19, 2002: Welcome to My Blog.

I sure wasn’t the first legal blog. After some snooping a few years ago, I concluded that honor belonged to Walter Olson at Overlawyered. But I’m pretty sure I was the first legal blogger in Massachusetts, for what that’s worth.

On that prior occasion when I traced back to the first legal blogger, former blawger David Giacalone came up with a haiku to mark the finding:

digital age
aging digits
at the keyboard

That seems apt today.
