At that point, there was nothing there. But in late 2002, this was replaced with the fCon site. fCon is a fictional corporate entity from the TRON 2.0 PC game. Parts of the site contained hidden messages, and people could "hack" the site to gain entry to a map of the site's network. There, they could continue "hacking" the servers to listen to voice mail messages, view screenshots from the game, download a screensaver and wallpaper, etc. It's best to watch the video in higher quality HD so you can see the details better. The site was created by marketing company 65media for Disney, with William Azaroff as producer of the project. His picture appears on the fCon site as the Chief Information Officer. Yohan Gingras (who has commented on this video) created the entire site in Macromedia Flash 5. For those who are observant and pay attention, the early screenshots of TRON 2.0 shown have some interesting differences to note from the final version of the game. - Jet originally had a different shirt from the one he wears in the final game. (From sort of khaki green with a large white stripe, to a navy blue.) The blond colored streaks in his dark hair were also much more pronounced. - The first level of the game looked very different in the pre-alpha, compared to the final game. It was probably just a placeholder/mockup. - The reticle is different, with the word "friend" or "foe".
