A small piece of the secret history

You’ve already seen what Google looked like in the 1960s, and you’ve presumably seen what it looks like today.

Now to split the difference: Google in the 1980s, with its old BBS interface intact.

(Snagged from Aaron Schmiedel on FB. Incidentally, you should have seen Facebook in the 1990s.)

    Love Google in the 80’s.

    Great find, CG.

    I had expected the ’80s Google to be a demo, not a genuine working site. Truly ahead of its time (heh).

    LOL pretty good. Brings back memories of using DOS Wordperfect, and my first dialup modem for checking my email.
