    Hi guys,

    I am doing some research for school for technology blog posts. I would like to know if it is possible to see some of the first blog posts about Apple (or technology) online, as I am comparing how they have changed overtime.

    I looked at AppleInsider, and could only find some in 1999. I would prefer some blog posts older then me. :)

    Try using archive.org, I think their way back machine archives pages going back to 1996 or so.

    Depends on the site, my previous company has records on the WBM from 1996 :)

    Tidbits will have some, they started in 1990 as a newsletter.

    Use Google's search tool (top right > Tools > Any time > Custom range...) to find specific dates. It doesn't work ALWAYS, but it's useful.

    Here is Yahoo Directory's old Tech section: https://web.archive.org/web/19961128070937/http://www8.yahoo.com/Computers_and_Internet/

    Might try a go at looking through Current Technology Headlines. Their archives go to 1996. And you have a good listing of all the websites around at that time too.
