BBC NI Online – 10 years old

Here in BBC NI Online (where I am Editor), we have just realised that we miossed our 10th birthday.  In June 1997 Marty Johnston delivered a floppy disc to Broadcasting House with bbc.co.uk/northernireland on it.  It was the days before Google, Facebook and Technorati. Blogging was not in our vocabulary.  Most people connected to the internet with a 25k modem.  Hardly anyone had internet at work.  We don’t have the original page – but you can find the 1999 version on the Internet Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/19990221174013/www.bbc.co.uk/northernireland/
