There is a handy, free tool on the Internet that lets you look back in time at almost any site on the Internet. You may be familiar with it. . . .
It is called the Internet Wayback Machine. You can do research or simply satisfy your curiousity.
For example, you can see what Google looked like over 15 years ago.
You can see what the NRC’s website looked like almost 20 years ago.
Did you realize 20 years have already passed since the Internet really took off?
Here’s the link:
Type the URL of the site you are curious about into the Internet Wayback Machine address bar on the front page.
