O’DonnellWeb was launched on 12/31/1995. That probably makes it one of the longest continuously running personal websites on the Internet. I bought the domain name in 1998, however the site was called O’DonnellWeb from day 1. I even wrote fairly regular updates and essays back then. Thankfully, none of that really early content survived my various server moves. I use WordPress to manage the blog, and it is hosted with the good people at GKG.
About Chris O’Donnell
My acting career started and ended in 5th grade. I had a non-verbal, yet very challenging role as tooth decay in a Dental Health Week production on oral hygiene. I followed up that success by trying out for the part of Hansel in Hansel and Gretel. My best friend got the role, and the kissing scene with Gretel. I got offered the job as stage manager. I took the hint, and left the stage behind forever. In other words, I am not the actor.
Today I live in the south DC suburbs with two teenagers, and my wife. O’DonnellWeb really has no editorial direction, but most of the posts are likely to somehow connect to my interests in open source technology, the Boston Red Sox, Purdue University, good beer, 80s era hard rock and metal and homeschooling or education. Or I might write about something totally random. You just don’t know.
