Mr. Peabody, Please Bring Out The Wayback Machine

If you’re my age or near it, then you will remember The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show and the Wayback Machine. If you teach web design, html or css – then this will be a fun lesson to your students who were only between the ages of 2 and 6 (if in high school) back in 1996 when the Wayback Machine first began cataloging the internet.

It might be interesting to look at a few corporate sites, your own district web page or some other pages to see how they have changed over the years. I would be a great discussion when looking at design elements, navigation tools or just plain design styles over the years.

Today’s kids have grown up with the web as ever present, so we should show them that it wasn’t always all powerful or all knowing.

  2. This was definitely one of the more interesting comments on my blog – an indy rock band.
