We’ve come a long way since launching the first wire service industry website in 1995.
The wayback machine provides the screenshot below, grabbed on Christmas Eve, 1996 . At the time, this represented the pinnacle of web design with frame-based navigation and a whopping 48-hours of search. Absent was flashing text, known in geek circles as a “blink tag.”
Today Business Wire’s distribution system and website manages thousands of press releases daily and syndication to countless partners in real time. We boast a five-year search window. Our patented N/X servers make it all possible.
