In honor of its 10th birthday, Google has made available its

January 2001 index

, the oldest available.

Let’s see what the Mighty Google can tell us about the H-Town and world of 2K1. (Many of the links are now dead, but if you click “View old version on the Internet archive"? you’ll have better luck.)

1. Enron is hiring! Three weeks of vacation and stock options! Where do I sign up?

2. Speaking of Enron, Jeff Skilling is gonna be a masterful CEO. The New York Times expects that Enron’s revenues will double in 2001. Ken Lay says the company “is doing extremely well right now.*?

3. Yao Ming leads the Sharks past the Rockets.

4. At 6-5, 188 pounds, Madison’s Vincent Young may be skinny, but he looks like a keeper. Shoot, he's even got an honorable mention in Texas Football magazine for almost being "our Wolf Brand Chili Player of the Week."


6. Shouldn’t this game have told Charley Casserly and the Texans “braintrust" all they needed to know about David Carr? Four interceptions and a benching against one of the only quality opponents Fresno State played?

7. Get ‘em while they’re hot: subprime mortgages for everyone!

8. Meet the iPod, a cool, high-tech “immersive entertainment device."

9. The expansion of the Katy Freeway will be finished by 2006.

10. Have no fear, people of New Orleans:

The implementation of these hurricane and flood protection projects embodies the Orleans Levee Board's commitment to assure the protection of the people and property of the City of New Orleans. Entrusted to protect Louisiana's highest concentration of major commercial infrastructure and one of America's most significant historical assets, the Vieux Carre, the Orleans Levee Board is determined to fight hurricanes from taking New Orleans by storm.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
