20 Years Ago Today: The First Website Is Published


...that was August 6, 1991

Even so, my first time.. I will never forget it! September 1996, I was with Eoin, in a small room at St John's Central College Cork where I was a student... Yes Eoin, he was the first one to introduce me...
... to the internet...
... my very first time...
...YAHOO...




Yes, at that time internet pages or sites - consisted mainly of white pages with black text and blue hyperlinks, maybe even some small colour graphics or tiny pictures, if you were lucky enough to have a speedy-conexion, you might even be able to see animated gifs on your screen, ..the simple things of life... how wonderful!

I designed my first website (multimedia kiosk) by 1997 and I built my first site by 1998 (even so these were nothing more than college's project)

By the way, I always find it really cool to search the internet archive, to see the retrospective of how internet used to look & feel (way way way way back....)
