The Year Was 1998 and a Young Celine Dion’s Heart Just Kept Going On…

We don’t mean to cause you to have to make another trip to your therapist, if somehow you’ve managed to choke down these memories, but do you at all recall the first time Flash started popping its head around all over the internet? We do and we were like everyone else who originally went from “Oh my sweet lord, this is awesome!” to “I hate this” in under three minutes flat. But no bother, as sometimes, even if you didn’t like it, or still don’t, it’s fun/interesting to revisit our past (see: school reunions). And to help celebrate the 10th year of Flash, Adobe is having a “best of the best” competition from once a year, starting with site from 1998 (because Adobe actually exists two years in the future). Really, some of this stuff isn’t bad at all. Most make you wait far too long, but with the small amount of data they could reasonably work with back then to compensate for 2400 baud modems, everything is fairly swift and impressive. Go take a gander and put in some votes yourself.
