My News Years Resolution... Blog More and Now Some History

Ok, so I take a year off here and there, so what?

Anyway, some news on plastics.com if you haven't visited lately. 

This June 20th will mark our official tenth birthday using the domain name plastics.com!

Even older than that, we started in 1994 as polylinks, then polymers.com early in 1995!

Here is the History of Polymers.com - Plastics.com Polymers-home110x335

In 1994, a small high-tech compounder of engineering plastics, Phoenix Polymers Inc., launched the first plastics portal as part of it's corporate web site. That section of the site was known as Poly-Links.

Wildly popular, in 1995, it was spun off into it's own site with the domain name polymers.com. The site offered industry links and ares for resumes, articles, chat and much more.

Ziff-Davis named it one the ten most significant technology sites worldwide in 1996.

So popular and full of potential, key managment of Phoenix Polymers soon sold their interest in that firm to pursue plastics related internet ventures full time and in the person of Greg Koski, founder, still do today at plastics.com, llc.

This pioneer site helped influence many followup sites such as PolySort, PlasticsNet, Omnexus and more.

Polymers.com went on to win many substanial web awards during the nineties including several international awards from industry organizations as well as internet entities.

The domain has been kept active and pointing at plastics.com since then to take advantage of search engine rankings and links.

For those interested, a web archive shows some of what the site looked like in 1997:

I'm a great lover of art but galleries and museums are most certainly not the new churches. Can you imagine the Tate Modern setting up soup kitchens for the homeless?
