#30YearsofGIFs – 5

 

 

Different versions of the ‘Under Construction’ GIF, such as the one featured above were popular on the early Net. For home-based website creators especially, these GIFs were a way of showing they were hard at work building their sites, just like at a construction site. Many of the GIFs were based off of US road signage. Sadly, after the demise of Web 1.0 in the first few years of the 21st century, the under construction GIFs that frequented the likes of Geocities went the way of the floppy disk, surviving now in only legacy sites and GIF collections.

GIFs turn 30

 

On the 15th June 2017, the GIF (those animated things that keep Gifville’s lights turned on) celebrated 30 years since it was devised by Steve Wilhite, of the US early computing firm CompuServe. Since then they have gone from strength to strength.

To celebrate this special milestone, Gifville will be releasing special #30YearsofGIFs pieces featuring the first GIFs to go viral. Up above is one of a series of GIFs made by GIPHY Studios to mark 30 years of dancing bananas and stuff. This one features Internet sensation Logan Paul.
