Vintage Clips: Web 101

Computerworld, 1996

In the spring of 1996, I went back to high school. At Sachem High in Ronkonkoma, Long Island, I spent a day shadowing a 17-year-old who had mobilized his fellow students to build a school website and changed the way students and teachers communicated. Vinny Pasceri's Webslingers was among the first of its kind during a time when you still had to ask traditional brick-and-mortar companies, "Do you have a website?" Today Pasceri is a senior member of Microsoft's Bing development team in Seattle. Follow him on Twitter: @vinnypasceri.
