I’ve been volunteering on the King County Democrats Finance Committee and we’ve been having a conversation about the organization’s staffing history. I was deeply involved with the organization from 2004 through 2008 but I only knew a few people from the prior years.
Thanks to the Internet Archive’s “Wayback Machine” I was able to find the officers from every year going back to 1999. This was something that I was really pleasantly surprised to be able to find!
This also gave me a new appreciation for the importance of making pages accessible to web crawlers. (Thanks Andrew V. of the Northwest Progressive Institute for peaking my curiosity on this with some comments about rendering a calendar server-side.)
Overall, this was a great discovery. Check-out the evolution of the King County Democrats web presence over the last 10 years: http://wayback.archive.org/web/*/http://www.kcdems.org/ or the evolution of almost any site: http://wayback.archive.org/web/.

This past month, Hillary and I closed on a three-bedroom home in the Montlake neighborhood of Seattle (South of the University District and north of Capitol Hill.) We’ll be slowly moving-in over the month of July and look forward to welcoming you soon.
Our new address will be:
2511 W. Montlake Pl. E
Seattle, WA 98112
Get directions with Bing
Come Visit in Seattle
We’re looking to set-up one of the bedrooms as a guest room and welcome our friends and family to Seattle. My sister will be visiting from Chicago, IL for a weekend in July and cousin Matthew from Salt Lake City, UT will be spending a weekend in August. Especially for friends from rougher climates, Seattle’s summers are beautiful and Seattle’s winters are very mild.
Two of our best friends, Michaela and Kevin, were in town from DC and joined us for our first meal in the new home yesterday. (Pagliacci Pizza and L’Ecole No 41 wine.) The sellers did not leave furniture so our current dining room is populated with a CostCo table and four CostCo folding chairs.
