Hulu.com ran an April Fools Joke with a retro look at what their site MIGHT look like back in 1996 – complete with the dial-up modem when you view a clip. Some of the flashing text and “Best Viewed in Netscape Navigator” are jokes that only web design geeks like myself would appreciate, but it did get me thinking.
b-roll.net started in February of 1996 and has evolved quite a bit since then. Thanks to the Internet Archives and their “Way Back Machine” I’ve been able to bring us a look at b-roll.net in 1999.
