Planning for The Wall Street Journal’s online presence began long before the web became mainstream. Software for the service was to be distributed on disks and users would dial in to retrieve updates. This early prototype was developed by Neil Budde, who championed the new service. Plans for a dial-up service would continue until January 1995, when the thinking turned to an internet service.
Money & Investing Update was the Journal’s first full news website. It launched on July 11, 1995, and concentrated primarily on markets news. A running commentary on the financial markets appeared on the home page beside the familiar print-style What’s News listing. A simple company research section, known as Briefing Books, was added in September 1995.
