Although CNN.com launched only one year ago, the site has deep origins -- at least in the accelerated hot house of Web life. Like the history of the Web, many different elements came together to create the site you're now visiting: television, CD-ROMs, online services, print and, of course, the advent of HTML. Like the history of our parent, CNN, you'll also find an unerring commitment to objective and accurate news.
For a non-linear look back at the development of CNN Interactive, we've devised the "Flashback Machine." Just click on it -- and you'll be randomly transported to a different era in our history. As CNN Interactive's first technical support person, Todd Fantz, put it, "That would make about as much sense as the way it happened anyway."
