Happy 10th birthday, internet banner ads — and HOTWIRED

BoingBoing reader Oivvio Polite says, "AdLand celebrates the banner ads tenth birthday, showing the first banner ad ever and AT&T 'you will' banner, and the commercials from 1994 that go with it. The banners turned ten years old October 25 2004." Link

And Wired News Editor Kourosh Karimkhany says, "BTW, the first site to run that ad (actually, to inspire AT&T to create those ads) was Hotwired. As it happens, today the ol' timers are getting together for the 10th anniversary of Hotwired."
