HISTORY:

 

The ATOMIC ROCKET was first launched in August of 1995. It was my personal homepage in college, and place to experiment with this new medium called the World Wide Web.

 

At the time, the world wide web was the new frontier and that frontier was flat grey, with black text and blue links. It was a light envelope to push, and college students all over the world were the ones doing it.

 

By March of 1996, the ATOMIC ROCKET was in Wired magazine, and over the course of the following year it garnered a number of awards and recognition that catapulted me into a creative life of technology and media.
