I was going through Webby Award winners the other day, and went as far back as 1997 and 1998. There are still quite a few snapshots there of old websites, but this one stuck out the most for me. 


ABC News, a huge entity, and this is what their website looked like. Check out that lined background, and the various amounts of fonts used on the page. This was the norm back then!

I can’t believe 15 years has already gone by since ’98. I know it was 1996 that I took my first class learning HTML and built my first website. It’s awesome to see how far along we’ve come.
