12,000+ Pages in that Historic Website

The first web pages went online in December 1994. The show was called Small Business Today at that time.   And, all of those pages still work!

Even back then, toward the end of that first season of thirteen episodes, we began directing people to that web site URL. From those first three pages, the site quickly grew.   There were little summaries of each episode of the weekly show, then soon the transcripts followed, then the case study guides. 

As other businesses began getting websites, an overview page was created to link back to each business.

In 1999 the site introduced streaming video.  Our sponsors, Tim Forbes, asked us why?  He commented that only porn sites could make streaming video work.Yet, by the end of 2000, there were over 100 episodes that could be watched within a little 200x150 pixel window.  Each week more streaming video was added along with the transcript, case study guide, and executive summary.  Many of those streams are still streaming today as a little java applet that can go down at 56 kbps telephone line!

In 2001 we attempted to move all this data into a database format.  We failed.  Now after six years, that vision is now being fulfilled.
