Does Anyone Remember Deepleap?

What a lot of people don’t realize is that Jennifer Love Hewitt was one of the very first bloggers. She was right up there on the A-list, with Powazek and Lance and Alexis and all them. Webbys and Hotbot and hand-coded html. Back then, the internet was like the Wild Wild West. Maybe the websites weren’t as pretty as they are these days, but they didn’t look as institutionalized, either. Sometimes Jennifer Love Hewitt can’t believe how much the internet has changed. These days it’s all Malcolm Gladwell this and Getting Things Done that. Hey, a link to an article in The New Yorker, thanks, I never would have found that. Back then, the web was crazy and emotional and filled with stories that meant something.
