20 Years Ago on Apr. 28, 1999 -- AIM 2.0 Group Chats, More Love@AOL

April 28, 1999: We led with "Group Chats for Work and Play" (gee, I wonder what kind of play chats we were not-referring to), along with Computing and Mother's Day shopping. Columbine was still in the My News headline, though the morning had 3 teens eyed as accomplices...
...while by the PM update, they were cleared. We also switched to free photo personals and MP3 software and photo editing tools.
[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
