The phrase “check our website” has become very commonplace. These are some of the phrases that have become old school with the transformation of the modern website:
- Let me send you some information in the mail
- I can send that via an overnight courier
- I just faxed you some information
The first website was launched publicly by British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee in 1991. It was launched at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN. The website contained information on how to create web pages and learn about hypertext. It stands to logic that the first website was a “how-to” guide for using and creating websites. Since then, websites started to catch on, here’s how it went according to internetlivestats.com:
1991 First website
Today ~1,973,647,805…wait, 1,973,647,806, wait, 1,973,647,807… Let’s just go with “a lot”
Big Village also has a new website. If you’re reading this, you’re getting one of the first looks.
It is always a work in progress as we are a dynamic company that is always looking to improve and find ways to be smarter, faster, and more creative to help our clients futureproof their business. Our website serves to open the door to Big Village, but please do not stop there. We invite you inside, to meet the villagers! With the launch of our new website, we don’t have to mail/overnight/fax you information on our company and capabilities. That is obsolete. What isn’t obsolete:
- Talking about that initiative.
- A brainstorming session.
- Looping in my colleague for their perspective.
Do not forget to engage us in a conversation at firstname.lastname@example.org. We love that the most.
