Washington Post: 1996 Year in Review

For some reason, dozens of Washington Post pages from 1996-1997 still exist on the main server. Interestingly, The Washington Post has prevented The Wayback Machine from archiving its pages. From the 1996 Year in Review: “The nation embraced the Internet as a new method of communicating, and The Washington Post began publishing on the Web in June with the launch of WashingtonPost.com. We asked you to “.com and get it,” and you do, to the tune of a half-million page views a day. Stick around — there’s more to come in 1997.”

The meta name tags confirm that the page was published and last edited on 01/06/97. For a trip down memory lane, be sure to also visit the 1996 Olympics page.
