True Joins the Web

Nearly a year old, This is True didn’t even have a web site until this week.

I didn’t even have a domain yet: a reader who already had a web site set up offered to host a couple of pages of info, and I readily agreed. Thanks, Joe!

I did, though, make sure I could get the thisistrue.com domain name when I was forced to come up with a new brand name — which was not on most company’s radars back in 1995.

It would be quite a while before it became trivially simple to host a site so I could I have it on my own server — let alone with my own domain name. After Joe, another friend with mad tech skills hosted the site for awhile, and later “server companies” made it easy.
