Move aside, .com: .wed, other domains will make Internet more crowded - Washington Post - 1 views

  •  
    ICANN was offering the chance to buy the top-level domain of a Web address. One woman paid $185,000 to own the domain .wed. Now over 1,900 new Web names are going to be introduced.

    Great article, Laura, and nice summary of it. Thanks!

Twenty years of a free, open web - Cern - 0 views

  •  
    Can't resist sharing this -- found it from Stephanie's "Oldest website on the Internet" link. Great short history of the web. "http://first-website.web.cern.ch" Note that it links to the "first" website at http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html , which is not the same as the "oldest" one that Stephanie linked to -- I think the one Stephanie posted was a demonstration site, but not a "real" site, so I agree that it's older. :)

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.

History of the Internet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  •  
    Wikipedia page about the History of the Internet that I showed in class. Note that the first Internet connection (really, the first ARPANET connection) was made between UCLA and Stanford -- most early work on the Internet was done at universities and was funded by government grants. It was only after the launch of the Web in the early 90s that businesses began devoting resources to the Internet and the Web.

Help and FAQ - W3C - 0 views

  •  
     The World Wide Web Consortium's definition of the difference between the Web and the Internet is understandably technical. It annoys me that there's a typo in which "TCP/IP" is misspelled "TPC/IP". Way to confuse people.

As We May Think - 0 views

  •  
    An article often cited as "inventing" the web, or at least the idea of it. Vannevar Bush worked in information intelligence during the Second World War, and his work in that field led him to conceive of a better way of finding and managing information. I don't know that the web has really solved that, though!

Digital History | Getting Started - 0 views

  •  
    This book, Digital History, exists in print form as well, but it is entirely available for free on the open web. It is written for historians who want to "go digital," so you as undergrads (and not necessarily History majors!) aren't exactly its audience, but the book is nevertheless excellent as an introduction to the underpinnings of the internet and the web.
