A Blast From the Internet Past

We were just moving some boxes around the office, and I uncovered a time capsule: a stack of ServInt Newsletters from the late 1990s. (We actually sent this newsletter out in the mail, when we all still thought it was clever to call it “snail mail.”

Our very first issue in May of 1997 profiled the recent additions to our tech staff. Reed’s quote about the six new hires perfectly captures the innocence of us and the Internet in 1997: “Clients wanted better tech support, so we wanted to give it to them… We’ve assembled a really good team. Clients will see we’ve got a tech staff now that they can rely on.”

Another great page I found from July of ’97 offers “Expert Help” with articles about how to test your line to see if you can use 56k modems for your ServInt dial-up account and the benefits of using content tags like <strong> over physical tags like <bold>. Oh, for the simpler days.

The Internet was a very different beast when we were writing these newsletters, but the excitement of the technology and the time is something that we still hold close at ServInt today.

I hope you enjoy this look into the past, and who knows, you may see more in the future.
