The Early Days of The Internet

An exhibition in London gathers 64 artifacts of the early web, from the first site that allowed users to order pizza online to one of the first animated GIFs to go viral. I wish I could see this!

  1. It’s worth noting that Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffet’s multinational conglomerate) STILL has a website from the early days of the internet: http://www.berkshirehathaway.com/

  2. Feh. I bet they dont have The Hamster Dance. THAT is classic early web…. Until some lackwit Disney attorney realized the music loop belonged to them, and they stomped it out of existence. :-/

    And that ASCII artwork generally predated the public internet, starting in the 60s or 70s.
