Remember when websites used to have a Guestbook? Archive.org’s WayBack Machine does!

“What’s a guestbook?”, I hear you whippersnappers asking. Wikipedia says “a guestbook (also guest book, visitor log, visitors’ book, visitors’ album) is a paper or electronic means for a visitor to acknowledge a visit to a site, physical or web-based, and leave details such as their name, postal or electronic address and any comments.” YourDictionary defines guest-book as “a feature of a website performing a similar function to a physical guest book.”

Talking about guestbooks now is like talking about days gone-by . The internet was a growing world in the ’90s (1990’s that is). As people started browsing websites, Guestbooks made it possible to talk, share, and interact with other netizens.

Thanks to the miracle of the interwebz, I was able to recreate the signings of the past. You, too, can be part of the future history of the WayBack Machine by adding your name to the guestbook today!
