James takes a look back at 2003, and talks about the beginnings of the Affiliate Buzz, and other notable beginnings that same year including Affiliate Summit and Google Adsense. James talks about why he started the Buzz. He needed to solve a problem of helping students with their questions and giving them feedback, since there was no Social networks. We called it an "audio newsletter" because podcasting had not even started yet, and we have had the privilege of recording the show from all over the world wherever we happened to be traveling.
