Murphy's Law

Old time proprietary online services

Paul Thurrott's post on the history and changes in MSN brought the memories flooding back.

I worked for Microsoft's Irish PR firm from 1991-1995 and I remember in the run-up to Windows 95 spending a massive amount of personal time on the MSN pre-release, then known as Marvel.

I thought it was fantastic (even over 14.4 dial-up) and offered a far superior user experience to the web – and given services like AOL weren't available in Ireland at the time (or now) it was an eye opener.

Anyhow, these screenshots brought me back…
