HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ESR:

Thank you (Steven Martinovich, June 1, 2006, Enter Stage Right)

) What a long strange trip it’s been.

It’s hard to believe that ten years ago today on borrowed server space that a humble little magazine known as Enter Stage Right was born. If you weren't around in 1996, and I'd say that is a virtual guarantee given the number of readers we had during those first few months, I can say that it's a miracle we're still around today. A small number of articles presented on an incredibly amateurishly designed web site (those two graphics you see in front of you are survivors from those distant days). Thank God we had a great personality.

What started out as a little vanity effort on the World Wide Web – complete with articles written by yours truly that were an odd mish-mash of Rush Limbaugh and Ayn Rand – today is a reasonably respected effort with some of the best writers donating their efforts week in and week out. What I began on a lark is today one of the oldest continuing online publications which boasts some pretty exceptional talent attached to it.

Along the way we’ve gotten into some controversies, did some pretty good reporting and commentating, got some stuff wrong, got more stuff right and had a good time along the way.


Steve shone like a lonely beacon throughout Canada's twilight years.

"commentating?"

It's like "orientating," only different.
