L.A.con III, the 1996 Worldcon

I love this L.A.con III home page. This 1996 website, put up by the World Science Fiction Society, is a great example of the trends that were going on at that time. This website had everything: the square icon clip art every website seemed to have, the 'new' icons on every link and the use of links to text (.txt) documents. The inclusion of the text documents enable the reuse of content on websites and in Usenet newsgroups. In the mid 1990's, Usenet newsgroups and BBS were still a primary way for technology focused folks to share information. Note that cassettes were used to for recordings of sessions.
