List of Dewey Decimal Classes - 0 views

  •  
    This is the Wikipedia page dedicated to the Dewey Decimal Classes. I thought this page was laid out very well and informative. It helps to show categories and numbers and allows individuals who don't know much about the Dewey Decimal system to gain valuable information into how it works.

    Since we were talking about the history of Google earlier today, I found this and I thought I'd share with you all. It gives a great detailed timeline (provided by Google themselves) on their history.

The Oldest Webpage Currently On The Internet - 2 views

  •  
    As the title says, this is the oldest site online. It uses hypertext and uses links within the text to browse information. It is a very basic, black and white site that really shows how far we have come since then.
  •  
    That is great, Stephanie! ibiblio.org is one of my favorite sites -- it's run by the library and information school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and it has a fair amount of tech history. It's similar in some ways to archive.org. I'm curious: how did you find it?
  •  
    I actually found it through a BBC article a few months back.

    The site I posted is not the original but is a copy of the original that Tim Berners-Lee kept.
