This final note today, which I love: The history of AOL as told through New York Times crossword clues.
The very first one — Jan. 14th, 1997 — “Prodigy competitor, for short.” Another, on Feb. 26th, 2002: “It merged with Time Warner.” All the way down to Dec. 5th last year: “‘You’ve Got Mail’ company.”
An engineer at Quartz, the Atlantic’s new business site, built an app to let you build a search all the way back to 1996.
Sadly, I’m not there. “Radio host…three letters.” How hard can it be?
