||row2k was formed in Spring 1997 in response to the utter absence of rowing information about a couple championships, especially the EAWRC Sprints, at which Ed had coached and still helps to run. After posting race times, dates, and directions to Lake Waramaug to rec.sport.rowing a few dozen times in a few days, Ed threw up some homemade HTML and got the word out. row2k was born.|
We started off modestly and without much knowledge of Web design, html, or much of anything about where we were headed; for the truth and the proof, see row2k when it was a few weeks old, on October 10, 1997.
row2k has since developed into what by most accounts is the most heavily trafficked rowing Web site in the world, and thus perhaps the most widely read rowing publication in any format ever? Everyone knows that Web sites are tricky business, especially as businesses - you can help us keep it going with your contribution.
Yes, we still all have dayjobs.
