I had to log in to my ancient Blogger account to post a comment on Zephyr Teachout’s blog and I noticed that they use a numbering system for accounts. I first used Blogger in November 1999 so my number is pretty low: 2805. This reminds me of a BBS I used (ISCABBS) when I first got online in 1993. A lot of my online pals wouldn’t change their username/handles because they didn’t want to lose their low number. Nostalgia!
