Twin Cities Free-Net: On-Ramp or Destination? — 1 Comment

  1. Reflecting on the internet being “mysterious or unknown to many people” in the 90s, sometime in the middle of that decade, Northwest Airlines contracted with me to develop the largest portion of its burgeoning website. Problem was, I’d never been online or sent an email, much less seen or developed a web page. The exec engaging me, who’d known me a couple decades, knew this, but just said, “you’ll figure it out.” So I went to a friend’s house to see a web page for the first time, quickly got online at home and learned HTML (to my knowledge, there was no software yet). It ended up becoming by far the largest account of my home-based communications business.
