10 years ago (roughly, this was December 18th, 2007) we were in Zurich and going through what was an insanely mild winter.
The interesting part here — is how badly the internet decayed in terms of linked images. That’s a good lesson — bring a copy with me!
10 years ago we were not Zurich-bound. I was very interested in moving abroad at the time. Susan nixed the idea of Iceland, I couldn’t find a job in New Zealand, so Switzerland seemed like a great idea. Furthermore Google had opened an office there and I would wind up applying for a job (not getting it though, different story).
Hard to remember that 10 years ago web cams weren’t all that mainstream. What’s even more astounding is this same Zurich-cam is still running. Most web sites I reference are gone or broken.
Here is a shot of the Jungfraujoch (same web cam group does this):
10 years ago the boys surprised me with a special birthday dinner. I caught a few pictures but didn’t do the event justice – a simple link to Flickr.
Le Menu indeed. I wonder what happened to these pages, so glad we captured pictures.
10 years ago I came across Skystream – the basic idea was they would provide a personal windmill for your property. I wrote about how great this would be.
Turns out, well… like so many technologies this one didn’t quite make it. While the site is still running (more than I can say about many of my past projects) the copyright shows 2013. The news page stops in 2011.
It’s still a fun idea but it looks like personal solar has surpassed wind at least for now.
