The web has an ephemeral character. Websites are here today and gone tomorrow - to data nirvana. We'd like to establish some idea of stability in this floating world, and history telling can do that. Call it a Netpressum (Innettum sounds a lot worse...).
We are more than 22 years on the web now - and counting.
First release: August 1995 as the very first website of an architect's office in Switzerland ("Internet? What IS this??"). It was a time the SonntagsZeitung was able to list all Swiss websites on just a couple of newspaper pages. This baby was a plain html-version with anchors. It featured a guestbook - and a web hit counter! (ever came across such a thing in the last dozen years or so?) Don't believe it? Check out the wayback machine (http://web.archive.org), and enter the URL mentioned below. It'll take you back to 1999, at least. We still got a couple of floppies of the first edition - but there's no drive left... Actually, we submitted those as our entry when we were asked to join the BSA. They were not amused.
June 1998: Mayor redesign, frames added
October 1999: Got own domain name. The original, rather awkward URL was "www.access.ch/private-users/mjauch"
January 2002: Migrated hosting from access.ch (diax / sunrise respectively) to green.ch
January 2004: Complete redesign by 3DAtelier Michel Wüest, including flash animations
May 2006: Migrated hosting to nexlink (Linux Server)
July 2015: Almost 20 years since its first appearance we had the website revamped by MESCH (www.mesch.ch) along with our CI. It is both flash-free and responsive. Thanks to Christian and Michi the Radio guy!
