History of
Best Homepage Ever

Justin Carver

This site began as a school project at the University of Oregon (USA), in my very first computer class in 1999. The homework assignment? Create a website.

Rather than creating something that would only be used for a week then scrapped, I thought it might be fun to create a page page that had links to all of the most commonly used sites for myself, friends, and family.

As time progressed, I began seeing friends of friends using it at the University, so over time my goal was to continue to add sites that were relevant and useful for people to use in their daily lives.

Now, with a broader userbase, I'm very proud and thankful to say that BHE is a useful tool for the world to enjoy.

Thank you for your support
