Inspired by a post at blogTO, What Toronto-based newspaper websites looked like a decade ago, I thought it’d be amusing to see what Portland-based newspaper websites looked like in the year 2000.
The image above is a snapshot of what the OregonLive.com homepage looked like almost exactly 10 years ago, on December 5, 2000.
Actually the Willamette Week, on December 4 2000 sported a splash screen. The page above is what you would see if you clicked on one of the splash screen links, and then clicked on the “home” image link on the top banner on the next page. User experience design has come a long way in the intervening years.
The PortlandTribune.com, in 2000, had begun publishing, but had a website “Under Construction”.
