Looking Back: Naccarato.Org via The Wayback Machine, 1997-2018
Naccarato.Org first went live 23 years ago in 1997. To put this in perspective as to what was happening at the time on the World Wide Web, I’ve listed some landmark sites which also launched around this time period. If you click on the links you’ll also get a view of how the websites looked like at that moment, courtesy of The Wayback Machine.
In 1997 there were 1,117,255 websites and around 120,758,310 internet users. Presently there are approximately 1.5 billion websites, though only 200 million are considered active. Since 2015, it is estimated that there are over 3,185,996,155 users (Internet Live Stats).
Also, one was depended on the speed of a 28.8 kbps baud modem which could take forever to upload and search the net.
But as technology changed so did the look and accessibility to the Naccarato’s website. Thankfully The Wayback Machine captured some of the evolving changes to the website over the years, by snapping and caching some of the website’s elements, beginning in 2000 until the present day, as shown with the images below.
