Happy Birthday, buckleyPLANET!
After a several years of occasionally posting articles across company and partner websites, including years of writing for Rational Software, Catapulse, and, following their acquisition of Rational, for IBM, I decided to launch a standalone blog. On February 3rd, 2004, buckleyPLANET.com was launched. Initially built on the Typepad platform, I migrated over to WordPress a few years back (I was a laggard, I know) and the site has continued to grow.
A few people have asked about the name. Honestly, it was a joke after my brother-in-law launched a website called FisherPlanet for his artwork. My original plan was to scan a bunch of poorly-executed crayon drawings and create a mirror of his site…but decided to repurpose the domain for my writing plans.
In celebration of this day, you all have my permission to eat your own body weight in cake. Just remember to lay down a tarp.
