Some of you may notice that the blog Millennial Star is no longer operating. I’ve received word that the site officially shuttered this morning.
Even though we’re all mormons, I didn’t find a lot of social or political commonality with the Millennial Star. Sometimes the posts there made me want to tear my hair out. At times we even positioned ourselves as enemies (albeit in an extremely petty, insignificant, and nerdy sense).
But now that the blog is no longer there, I kind of miss it. The roster there are people worthy of respect: Ryan and Davis Bell, Clark Goble, The Baron, Bryce I., Grasshopper, Matt Evans…. the list goes on. Many of these are names that are indelibly linked in my mind to the nascent days of the Bloggernacle, primordial heroes of the Blogs. Many of them have their own sites, and I hope that we haven’t seen the last of them. It’s a pity that the blog only lives on in the Google Cache.
Raise a glass with me and drink to the bloggers of the Millennial Star.
