Happy motherfucking birthday to Lance’s

Happy motherfucking birthday to Lance’s Glassdog.

Five long years doing the same site. I’m feeling the burden after just two years of MetaFilter, and four years of a somewhat updated personal site, but nothing compares to the labyrinth that is glassdog. I saw pointers to it in 1996, which I followed, and I didn’t get it. In 1997 it came up more and more, and still, it didn’t strike me as all that interesting. Some time in early 1998 I found a smart and funny essay on the site and suddenly it all clicked. I’ve visited near-daily since then, even going back and reading probably every word on the site at least once. It’s always been a source of laughs and inspiration and I look forward to many more years of enjoyment there.
