About Us

Palo Alto Online (Palo Alto, CA), launched September 25, 1996 and redesigned in September 2000, continues the online tradition of the Palo Alto Weekly, the award-winning weekly newspaper that was the first newspaper in the United States to publish on the World Wide Web in January, 1994. We have included a full timeline of our online publishing.

Palo Alto Online offers access to the entire contents of the Palo Alto Weekly, including back issues beginning in 1994, as well as a wide range of information about the Palo Alto area.

Our goal is to provide residents and other interested persons with a convenient, well-designed web site that can serve as an online "hub" for the community, linking computer users to information on community events and resources, links to other web sites relating to life in Palo Alto and a way to interact with each other.

Since Palo Alto Online is under constant revision and improvement, we welcome your feedback and ideas.
