Lifehacker jumped into the game (as did Deadspin, Gawker, Jezebel, Kotaku, Jalopnik, and Gizmodo) so I guess that means all of Gawker Media is enjoying its Senior Week. And we’re kind of part of Gawker Media sort of* so uhhh welcome to ODeck Senior Week 2016**?

Your ODSW-2k16 question if you wish to pursue it: how many years have you been doing this whole “being-online” thing?

My answer if you wish to read it: 20 years as of this month. I don’t remember exactly when in August of 1996 I started being online but that’s the month it began for better or for worse.

*They’re paying for the servers that host ODeck so THANKS GAWKER MEDIA

**Senior Week is apparently an US-English phrase for a week where recently graduated students go on a short vacation.***


***I don’t see how that name has any relation to this being the last week before Gawker Media is auctioned off
