Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2006 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
I met my husband over the web; I read his blog before we ever met. I knew about this company, and got this amazing job, because I read Joel Spolsky's blog. I've received and given so much value via Craigslist, Wikipedia, Google, Salon, SFGate, TransitInfo, and other web sites that I can't possibly valuate it all. I cannot imagine my life without the web. Thank you.
