I’m a Web developer by day, and I’m old enough to remember when I saw my very first “World Wide Web” pages back in high school. So it makes me doubly-nostalgic to see images like these.
I still recall the summer after my senior year in high school, when a friend told me about this bookstore called Amazon, that had every title you could imagine. I had been looking for an out-of-print Robotech art book, and thought I might try it. I had to email them a description of the book in order to find it. The site that I placed the order on looked very much like the one above. I can only imagine how insecure the whole process was…
What’s the first Web page you saw? Are you an O.G. like me, from the days when image support was not taken for granted?
How about a de-make of the Retroist, ’95 style, complete with some blink tags?
