Happy BZ Media Day! It’s been ten years!

Ten years ago, Ted Bahr and I decided to launch a company together. That company, of course, is BZ Media. Today is one of our two key anniversary dates.

April 30, 1999: We decide to start a publishing company. We didn’t know the name of the company. We didn’t know what we’d do — whether it would be print, online-only, events-focused, or what.

February 23, 2000: The cover date of the debut issue of our flagship publication (and first product), SD Times.

What a wonderful decade it’s been, and business keeps getting better. Here are some historical documents:

July 30, 1999: Experienced High-Tech Publishing Team Launches New Media Company

October 7, 1999: SD Times Brings Immediacy to the Software Development Marketplace

October 10, 2001: SD Times Honored for General Excellence

January 14, 2002: By Combining Print and Digital Versions, SD Times Makes Publishing History

The terrible picture is from March 6, 2000. (I’m the good-looking one.)

    Let’s Do Launch! That was taken in the back room of the Harborside in Oyster Bay (BEFORE they opened that beautiful outdoor patio area overlooking the parking lot behind the firehouse!)
    I still have the shirt, and wear it proudly!
