15 years ago on this very day, our journey as 1st Easy began. It was 1999, and websites looked like this, this, and this (ok, not a drastic change with this one actually — aside from Shania Twain being listed top of their music charts…).
Friends Reunited was about to become a big deal (it would be a good few years before we’d all be Liking and Following on Facebook) and there was nowhere to post selfies so nobody took them (even if that would have been possible on one of these). Google was around, but they were still the internet’s “Good Guys”.
Meanwhile, one 56k modem and a shared AOL connection served our office (we had to take turns to login and download our emails). The Cloud? It wasn’t even a glint in our collective eye as we busily set about designing, building and hosting the first generation of ecommerce sites.
