10 Concepts That Didn't Exist 10 Years Ago

10 concepts that didn't exist 10 years ago

It was 2004, and "blog" was the word of the year. A newborn network called TheFacebook was only known to a few college students.

I was busy planning my (very cheap, very DIY) wedding ceremony via wedding forums and blogs; at work, I was making the case to my boss that enabling comments on the site would not "cheapen the experience."

It was a different world.
