I named this blog after one of the first websites I put up, in 1995. NetSifter.com was Google before Google.
Actually, I think my very first site was MadameB.com. It was a fortune-telling site inspired by the arcade game memorialized in the Tom Hanks movie Big. People from around the world — many from South America for some reason — would send questions to Madame B. And she would answer them! (Madame B. c’est moi.)
After a quarter-century in print (mostly magazine) publishing — Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, MEDIA Magazine, others — this is how I get my jollies apparently, inventing websites. Like KerryEdwards.org, which launched 18 months before that ticket even formed; and PDFchecker.com, which may someday make me millions; and most especially TheFrequency.com, which just may be an entirely new form of communication.
Yep, you nailed me: I’m a dreamer.
