Welcome to Lullaby Pit: one of the world’s oldest Web sites celebrates its 20 birthday
It was 20 years ago today in Boulder, CO.
Do you remember where you were on April 1, 1994? I do. I was sitting at a computer in an apartment at the corner of Colorado and Foothills in Boulder, launching this really new thing called a “Web site.” Today there are over 932 million of them (and counting) in the world, but at that point there were maybe 2,000.
It was pretty primitive stuff back then: plain text on a white background with some hyperlinks, and if you wanted to do one you had to know html and a bit of UNIX.
Today I pause and look back at Lullaby Pit. If you’re interested in a small moment in Internet history, click here and join me.
Congratulations, you really are an Internet pioneer. (I had always wondered what Lullaby Pit meant.)
Congrats on the anniversary Sam! It was interesting to read about the name and the evolution.
