It was started in 2002, using Radio by Userland Software by Dave Winer.
Radio was a great product because it kept all of your information locally and pushed updates out to the webserver only as needed. It also had a great feed-reader that made it very easy to “click to post” something you discovered in another RSS feed.
What that meant was that everything worked very fast – locally, and all your ISP had to do was display HTML files. No fancy scripts or anything had to be running ‘up there’.
Oh, well – working on getting things up and running again with WordPress.
