This may not be completely tech-related, but a lot of tech journalists can relate to Starbucks and besides, it’s a special birthday for both Starbucks and myself (my birthday is on March 28th)

It has been 20 years since Starbucks first launched the Frappuccino in North America.
It all started when Starbucks was experimenting with a blended, frozen coffee-flavoured beverage at one of their Los Angeles store. At the time, Starbucks only had 10 stores in southern California, back in 1993.
By the time summer came along in 1994, all of those stores were serving blended coffee beverages but it still wasn’t officially introduced. Around the same time, Starbucks acquired The Coffee Connection in Boston, they already had a product called the “frappuccino”, which was a cold, slushy drink that was made using a soft-serve machine. Starbucks then applied the “frappuccino” name to their new blended beverage.
