    Channel 9 started over 4 years ago. The first video was posted on the 15th March 2004. Do you still remember what you did by that time?

    I was at university (very undergrade) and did internships at a very small company (was very small by that time; is larger now). I was studying for one of my first math exams by the time that this website went on, if I remember correctly...

    Going college (undergrads / C.S.) and working as an intern at a software company (my first ever job).

    Not sure how I came here, but Scoble's videos were the main reason I stayed on and came everyday (most of the days, more than once)... now I don't need to come Smiley The feeds bring it to me

    I, too, joined under a different name the day it began (although, it might have been a day later). I was working for a company and thought, "we're really going to make a difference in this industry." Read into this as you might - I no longer work for them.

    I was also beginning my graduate degree, which I completed not too long ago.

    Off subject, LittleGuru... And no disrepect intended for the woman in the photo of your avatar (or you, for that matter).

    But, that picture, and the hand gesture just has me thinking of Monty Python and the Holy Grail...."She has HUGE..... Tracts of land.."

    It looks like she's describing a sandwich too big for her to chew, littleguru. Wink

    Anyways, what was I doing 4 years ago?  I was teaching myself ASP.NET by converting a set of ASP sites at the company I was working at while supporting a VB application I wrote 8 years prior to that.  I didn't join C9 until a year or so later, I guess.

    I was a VB MVP working at a consulting company, but I was at the MVP Summit in Redmond when they showed it to us (not sure if that was the first day it was launched, but if not, it was only a couple days after it launched.  I signed up and thought the interviews were cool, but was most impressed with the site.  Got a job on the team a year and a half later and I'm still here.  Smiley
