    • It seems like every 6-12 months, a tech blog will punt with some screenshots from The Wayback Machine and a “look at the old web” article.

      I’d be very interested in an article that used original screenshots from the time, and some real historical context and insight into the technologies powering the sites and the way people used them. Just going to Archive.org and taking some screenshots is, well, lazy.

    • Some possibilities:

      * They had good UI designers to start with, so no major changes were needed.

      * By now the site appearance is part of their brand, so they don’t want to change it.

      * Amazon may now be such a complex site that a change would be expensive.

      * It’s not broken, so there’s no need to fix it.

  •  Collect, organize, and share — A great new way to express your interests.
