The early days of slashdot

By Justin Silverton

I have been a regular reader (and occasional poster) of the popular tech site http://www.slashdot.org since 2000. Recently, I searched archive.org for the earliest version of the site I could find.

Here is a link: http://web.archive.org/web/19980113191222/http://slashdot.org/
it is slashdot.org on January 13th, 1998

Some interesting archived article summaries taken from the above link:

IE Takes the Lead?

Contributed by CmdrTaco on Fri Jan 09 at 2:09PM EST From the fun-with-numbers deptDavid Fagan wrote in to tell us about this article where it is reported than recent statistics show that IE4 is out on top in the browser battle with 63% of the traffic at various high traffic sites. I don't put a lot of weight in these stats, but this is a pretty significant number.

Intel Releases 266 Pentium

Contributed by CmdrTaco on Fri Jan 09 at 12:29PM EST From the pushing-but-not-hard deptIntel is releasing the 266Mhz version of the possibly immortal Pentium line of CPUs. Supposedly this chip is primarily for the Laptop world. Interesting timing considering how hard Intel is pushing the P2 lines of chips, and the next generation of that line that is due out soon. Thanks to David Fagan for alerting us.
