The Original Adidam Website
Adidam's original, official website went
online in 1994 — the very first year the Web became available
for public use. (Its developer, Chris Tong, happened to be in the right place at the right time,
as a professor of computer science, to take advantage of the new medium.) By 1996, the site had evolved and expanded to
the point where it was earning recognition out on the Web for
its comprehensive presentation of Adidam — including the two awards below — which greatly pleased
Avatar Adi Da Samraj.
1994. Awarded by Point
(Lycos). "TOP 5% of all Web Sites" was a web
directory run by Lycos that aimed to review, categorize and
award the top websites. TOP 5% was started in 1994
by Point Communications and was a pioneer in the field. In terms of actual
5%" was an entirely arbitrary designation with the editors simply picking excellent websites
from the few available in the early days of the Internet.
