  • My wife managed to dig out her 1984 "Seven and the Ragged Tiger" Duran Duran tour T-shirt before heading down to find cheap scalped tickets after doors to the band's concert tonight had just opened. But it's not 1984 anymore, of course: she reports that everyone in the audience is over 30, and most were talking to their friends elsewhere in the stands on cell phones—or, like she was, telecasting snippets of the show to people like me at home. And she can drink in the stands, legally.

  • Yahoo! is making waves about its tenth anniversary this year, including posting a copy of its home page from early 1995. Of course, someone found an even earlier version and posted that online too.

  • Ten years ago, when Yahoo! was getting started, I was playing a three-week residency with my band at a hotel in Terrace, B.C., where there was no Internet access to while away the time. We spent much of our many free daytime hours in our rooms, where the diversions included watching hours of Discovery Channel, among other things. I can't believe I'm still in the same bloody band.
