Wow, this is information packed!

Thanks for sharing, Sergey!

Wait, what?

It's Jon Postel, not Poster.

Peapod didn't create an online store in 1989 (it was just founded in 1989) as it was illegal to do online transactions over the Internet until 1993.

It's funny they don't mention or only mention in passing some hypertext projects that lead up to the WWW.

Also, they skip some action packed years during the 90's.

They could have taken some hints from the Computer History Museum.

p.s. And thanks for sharing too. It was fun to read and see it in the Facebook timeline.

They really could use a good editor.
