The web has an ephemeral character. Websites are here today and gone tomorrow - to data nirvana. We'd like to establish some idea of stability in this floating world, and history telling can do that. Call it a Netpressum (Innettum sounds a lot worse...).

We are more than 22 years on the web now - and counting.

First release: August 1995 as the very first website of an architect's office in Switzerland ("Internet? What IS this??"). It was a time the SonntagsZeitung was able to list all Swiss websites on just a couple of newspaper pages. This baby was a plain html-version with anchors. It featured a guestbook - and a web hit counter! (ever came across such a thing in the last dozen years or so?) Don't believe it? Check out the wayback machine (, and enter the URL mentioned below. It'll take you back to 1999, at least. We still got a couple of floppies of the first edition - but there's no drive left... Actually, we submitted those as our entry when we were asked to join the BSA. They were not amused.

June 1998: Mayor redesign, frames added

October 1999: Got own domain name. The original, rather awkward URL was ""

January 2002: Migrated hosting from (diax / sunrise respectively) to

January 2004: Complete redesign by 3DAtelier Michel Wüest, including flash animations

May 2006: Migrated hosting to nexlink (Linux Server)

July 2015: Almost 20 years since its first appearance we had the website revamped by MESCH ( along with our CI. It is both flash-free and responsive. Thanks to Christian and Michi the Radio guy!
