March 2000 - History of Online Games Part II by Jessica Mulligan
This was intended to be a two-parter, but I am expanding it out to three parts, simply because there is so much to cover. In this section, we will cover the time period from 1989 to 1993, just before the recent explosion of online gaming. And to reiterate from Part I: This is not meant to be the definitive milestone marker, just something of a draft road map of some major events. If you see an error, know of a major milestone that I missed or one that you believe should be a part of the time line, drop me a line at bth@happypuppy.com . 1989 Bill Louden hires Jessica Mulligan as GEnie's first dedicated games product ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

If John Putney, chairman of the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation, has his way, the skybox will be a great place to watch football games, such as the annual Iowa-Iowa State clash, in addition to a national venue for world-class horse shows. Putney hasn't worked out the details yet, but when he was giving tours of the skybox last week, he mentioned that his friend Denny Elwell has suggested working out a deal with ISU and Iowa so that fans can gather at the Jacobson Center and watch the two teams compete on the giant TV screen at the east end of the arena. It probably won't happen this year, Putney said. But he ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
