Pacific NW Portal celebrates fifth anniversary

Five years is a long time in the history of the Internet, but as of today, that's how long Pacific NW Portal, one of our most important projects, has been around.

Launched on January 31st, 2005, the Portal has become an indispensable tool for navigating the local progressive blogosphere. The original Portal was just one page, but has since grown by leaps and bounds to include additional resources.

It's been through a lot of changes, especially early on its history, when we were rolling out new features or strengthening existing ones every other week.

The Portal's current architecture dates to Version 4 (Seaside), which went live in May 2006, and admittedly, it's gotten a bit creaky.

Although we're not rolling out any improvements today, we want to assure readers that we do plan to address the situation before long.

Today, though, we're proud to celebrate sixty months of bringing the regional netroots community together. Here's to another solid five years of operation!
