Six Years Ago to the Day

A glimpse of the future?

Bwog was born out of remedial html coding and ramblings about Russian art. Life was never very easy in the beginning. Spec was curious, Gawker didn’t want to play nice, and Bwog tried to be the big kid on the playground.

Since then, Bwog kind of grew up, but never at heart. There has been a mix of the useful with the absurd. Growing pains are definitely in our future, but we’ll keep chugging so long as there are bellies to fill and PrezBos to creep.

We would like to thank you, our dear readers, for your tips, tweets, comments, and love.

Forever Yours,

    @Dear Bwog You have been a wealth of information. Your staff … only the best. You have become part of the Columbia University culture and beloved by students, alums, administration and staff.
    A. A. Milne said it best.

    Now We Are Six – A.A. Milne
    When I was one I had just begun
    When I was two I was nearly new

    When I was three I was hardly me
    When I was four I was not much more

    When I was five I was just alive
    But now I am six, I’m as clever as clever;

    So I think I’ll be six now for ever and ever.
