Google 2001 Search
In honor of Google’s 10th year anniversary, they’ve brought back their oldest available index dated 2001. Google only had over 1.3 billion webpages indexed that time and it’s a little nostalgic to do some ego-searching on that year.
A search for “yugatech” in 2001 reveals my old website hosted on HyperMart.net. It was an “AnandTech” wannabe.
Back then, .com domains were still $35 a year but there were at least two services that gave out free domains in exchange for free banner ads (via an ad bar) like NameDemo.
My university-hosted page also shows up when searching for my name and it showed our project page on WireLess LAN. I was playing around with 2Mbps WiFi networks back in 1999.
