When I started Apple 2.0, AAPL was $8.39 a share*

Philip Elmer-DeWitt

*Close price adjusted for dividends and splits, per Yahoo Finance.

It was the spring of 2007, and I was getting $5.00 per 1,000 page views from now-defunct Business 2.0.

Every $5 invested in Apple on March 1, 2007 would now be worth, at Friday’s closing price ($185.11), $110.

My take: I’m in the wrong business.
