I might be late to the game, but I just found out about this “Way Back Machine” thing that is going on. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, like I hadn’t until last week, it is essentially a website that will show you the history of any website in its existence. You can see anything from Google’s first website or remind yourself of your website when it first launched.
Here is the lesson that I learned from it. If apple’s website once looked like this but now can look like this, then there is hope for us all. We all HAVE to keep refining what we do; growing, learning, and changing. If you don’t change, you will be left behind.
Also, Google’s website then and now. Really not that different… Pretty amazing the level of focus, foresight, and consistency that they have been able to show to stay on top of their game, and yet still be so true to who they were from the beginning.
