I met Jeffrey Zeldman in 1995, before his site lived at zeldman.com. When Jeffrey's blog turned eight years old, I still hadn't started my big blogging company with Jason.

I got to work pretty closely with Jeffrey for a few years and was happily the best man at his wedding, which was a debatable title since Tantek was also there.

And now Jeffrey's site has turned twelve. Wikipedia tells me I need to get him either something made of silk or garnet.

Wikipedia also tells me that Niki and I are doing the right thing spending our ninth wedding anniversary at a Yankees game this year. The ninth anniversary is your leather anniversary, so we'll be watching a bunch of guys flash some leather. That reminds me, I need to order her a Chris Berman t-shirt for the occasion.

What was I talking about again? Oh yeah. The former Dr. Web also provides a handy archaeologist's guide to his own body of work and highlights one of his favorite strata, mid-April 2003.

I loaded that one up and was pleased to see that his archive contained a bunch of references to one of my favorite old (now totally offline) projects, Meet The Makers. He linked to my Bob Parsons (GoDaddy) interview, which is interesting because Bob Parsons just interviewed Jason about Mahalo on his radio show this week, and also to my interviews with Steve Champeon and John Lenker.

Someday soon I will have to bring that old content back online and enable comments on it all -- especially my Darby Conley (Get Fuzzy) interview.

Congratulations, Jeffrey!
