Happy Belated Birthday, Manila

house of warwick: Manila: Five Years Old. Steve points to Dave’s post on the fifth anniversary of Manila, the content management system cum blogging system that runs this site, as well as the blogs of more than a few Net luminaries. Unfortunately, it remains the Rodney Dangerfield of blogging platforms. I still have to explain Manila, and Userland, and Dave, and the whole history of blogging every time someone asks me what my site runs.

Manila officially launched on November 29, 1999. I got my first Manila site, the direct ancestor of this one, on March 14, 2000.
