Vice-President Al Gore unveiled the “Interactive Citizens’ Handbook”—the first iteration of the WhiteHouse.gov website—on October 20 1994, promising “a place on the information superhighway where people can get needed information about government services and where they can provide immediate feedback to the President”. Check out this video of him “cutting the ribbon”.
