[Original Blog] I can make some claim to this being The Original Blog and Daybook. I certainly started keeping a day book well before most, and long before the term "blog" or Web Log was invented. BIX, the Byte information exchange, preceded the Web by a lot, and I also had a daily journal on GE Genie. Both of those would have been considered blogs if there had been any such term. All that was long before the World Wide Web.

Is this right? If so, and if Pournelle had moved his column to the web sooner, he might well have had the first blog. And although APOD has been going for (much) less time than Chaos Manor, APOD has been on the web since 1995. So one might say that APOD is a longer running blog than Chaos Manor.
