Looking Back at Our Website

In my wanderings online I stumbled across a very interesting tool for viewing older versions of websites. Internet Archive, a non-profit internet indexing and library site, has a “Wayback Machine,” that allows you to view old versions of websites in its database.

It was interesting to follow the progression of both the design and content of our website from its start in 1997-8 to today and see the evolution of its content. This could also be a good tool to find articles or information that has been reorganized or has disappeared from a site, or that would be stuck in an archive or Lexus-nexus that would require payment to view. The original Google page is particularly amusing.
