Happy Birthday, Future Oakland!

Since I just wrote a nostalgic reflections on blogging post a couple weeks ago, I don’t really have much new to say on the subject. But I couldn’t let the day pass without noting that today marks the five year anniversary of the Oakland blog Future Oakland, which dto510 and I started during the 2006 Mayoral election campaign.

Five years later, both of us are still at it. dto510 took a little hiatus last year in order to work on Rebecca Kaplan’s Mayoral campaign, but is now back. (If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out his new post about how well new Mayor Jean Quan is delivering for Oakland.)

He is also, along with me and Becks, one of the bloggers beyond honored by the League of Women Voters Oakland with the Making Democracy Work award at their annual luncheon on Wednesday, April 27th. If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, there’s still time to do so, but not much. So hurry!.

And please, head over to Future Oakland and congratulate dto510 on five years!
