From the Archives

There’s a lot of fascinating anecdotes in this recent provocative Business Week article on Jeff Bozos, but one interesting tidbit in the article is the screenshot of the original Amazon.com website back in 1995.

While we’re on the topic, stay inside our Internet time machine to see what other popular websites looked like when they first appeared on the world wide web.

Google (with the exclamation):

Ebay (with the literal headline. It’s an auction. On the web. Auction Web.):

MySpace (Awkward….):

Twitter (Creator of this logo has NOT stepped forward to claim credit):

New York Times (:

Yahoo:

Lastly, I shut down the site a long time ago and most of the images are no longer cached, but courtesy of the Wayback Machine, here is a screenshot of my original blog on Xanga back in 2004:
