The Evolution of Fast Pitch

As mentioned in a prior post, Fast Pitch is celebrating its 5th birthday this month. Technically however, what most people don't realize is that Fast Pitch is also closing in on it's 8th birthday in September. Wait... What?
Prior to becoming an online social network, Fast Pitch was a sole-proprietorship (owned by yours truly). For nearly three years I hosted and promoted networking events around the country from 2003 - 2006. Then, after becoming burned out with the event business and facilitating events for close to 10,000 people from Miami to Los Angeles and everywhere in between, Fast Pitch changed directions and became what it is today... an online social network for small business professionals.
On behalf of the 5th (and upcoming 8th) birthdays, I thought I'd take a stroll back in time and post some screen shots that demonstrate the evolution of the Fast Pitch homepage over these eight years. Enjoy.

(October 2003 - Fast Pitch announces the first of 200+ networking events from 2003-2005. Unfortunately, many of the images on the archived page no longer exist)

(January 2006 - Fast Pitch begins offering online networking events using a proprietary web based system to host and manage events remotely. These events spawn the birth of the Fast Pitch Profile).

(March 2006 - Fast Pitch begins to use the profile to help people be found on Google)

(June 2006 - The Fast Pitch Online Business Network goes Live! Members can now connect to one another and post a variety of content to their profile.)

(December 2006 - A newer version of our logo makes it's first appearance)

(June 2007 - We're growing and adding more features)

(June 2008 - A new logo and a more serious layout)

(December 2008 - The homepage begins to take the shape of today's Fast Pitch)

(January 2010 - Present)
