I was curious to read the first post John Gruber did for Daring Fireball, what is linked here is the oldest post in his archives, which seems to be his first. I thought this bit was funny:

And, if you have a lot more money than the Daring Fireball does and want to take advantage of the new machines’ built-in support for dual displays, you can use this rebate offer to buy as many monitors as you want. Sweet.

I don’t think I recall another time where he refers to himself as ‘the Daring Fireball’ – overall a good read and still great writing even at the outset of the blog.

BTW, do any readers know if he has ever talked about the name Daring Fireball before?
