Ah, holiday traditions. Sipping eggnog. Hanging stockings. Leaving cookies for Santa. Watching "A Christmas Story" on a loop on TNT. Embarking on a brief journey of the web of yesteryear.
About that last one… that nostalgic journey has become one of my annual traditions during my days with Light Reading. So, therefore, it's one of yours, too. Maybe. Perhaps. I hope.
As we all prepare to kiss 2020 good-freakin'-bye, it's once again time to kick back and click through a sojourn of the World Wide Web of yesteryear, courtesy of the Internet Archive's WayBackMachine.
So, please join me through another trek down memory lane as we glance back at some web pages from big names such as Netflix, Comcast and Cisco, some companies from somewhere in the middle, and a few that are long gone.

And if you've got some ideas for the 2021 This Olde Website slideshow extravaganza, just drop me a line and I'll see what I can dig up.
