Developing Websites Since 1998
I built and launched my first website in 1998, long before smartphones and social media networks reigned supreme. Yahoo and Alta Vista were the top search engines and Google was unknown. Netscape and Internet Explorer were engaged in the first browser war, while AOL was the nation’s top ISP… via the standard 56K dial-up modem.
Through the years, I have witnessed and responded to the digital evolution that what we enjoy today… from the simple HTML pages of 1998 to the database-driven architecture we see today.
For the curious-minded, I built my first website using a utility called Hot Dog Express, which was one of the first WYSIWYG HTML editors. The website was hosted through AOL Hometown.
