> As far as I know, back in 2000 or thereabouts, Jason Whittenburg wanted to create 2 websites, Security Geeks and News Geeks (I don't even know their original URLs) and was looking for a CMS. When he couldn't find one that he liked, he went on to write his own - what eventually became Geeklog (actually, if you check the very end of public_html/docs/history, there's an entry that refers to another CMS, phpWebLog, which Geeklog seems to have borrowed some code from).
> Geeklog's security focus also dates back to those days. After all, how can you run a site about IT security if the CMS running that site is not secure?
> When Jason moved on (handing Geeklog over to Tony Bibbs), he also sold those two sites. I don't know what happened to them, but I don't think they're still operational.
