A few weeks ago, Shane showed me a page with early content I wrote for the wainuiomata.com website (then ynui.co.nz) before we recorded our first ever blog post in 2005.

It is all about the early development of the site, and I was thinking while it is on the Internet Archive still, I want to grab it again and turn it into articles, setting the actual date correctly so it shows as the earliest posts.

Right now, our earliest post is Respect 2005 Hiphop Festival from February 16 2005. I remember the event well, and I remember only having a limited amount of photos because the camera battery ran flat and we didn't come prepared with a backup. Remember this was before smartphones, so you couldn't just use your smartphone to take photos so we carried a digital camera around.

So I'll see what I can do to fish some of the early content from the Internet Archive and re-add it to the blog. This was before we even had a blog.
