Computer History Museum - Internet History - 0 views

  •  
    A timeline of the Internet (with portraits!) from the Computer History Museum. This timeline begins in 1962 and ends in 1992 with the invention of the World Wide Web -- or, rather (though I'd say it's the same thing), with the 1992 invention of the first web browser, Mosaic, at the University of Illinois.

History of Google - 0 views

  •  
    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.
  •  
    That is a good link, Paola, thanks.

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.

Library of Congress Fire - 0 views

  •  
    Just a short history article regarding a fire that broke out at the Library of Congress. This ended up destroying many of the resources the library had at the time.

Historical Perspective Journal - 0 views

  •  
    This Journal, known as Perspectives on History, runs through the American Historical Association. It gives great perspective on various aspects of history through how its being used in teaching, the media, and through the archives. For any history majors out there, I strongly recommend checking out this journal.

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. :)

History of the Internet - YouTube - 0 views

  •  
    This animated video is British, and that affects some of its perspective (Internet history books will tell you more about the American side), but it's particularly good for showing the structure of the Internet.

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.

The Search Engine That Has Indexed All Tweets in History -- Now a Possible Acquisition ... - 0 views

  •  
    I came across this as I was looking for history of search engines and its pretty crazy that the site Topsy has been able to save every single tweet since twitter launched! that's 300 billion tweets!!! and you can search them all as it is open to the public. I hadn't heard about Topsy but it seems like they are gaining a good reputation and going against big search engines like Yahoo and Bing.

History of Music Publishing - 1 views

  •  
    This is just a Wikipedia article about the history of music publishing but I shared it because I remember my music prof. at Mason talking about Stephan Foster being the first songwriter who got copyright over his material and he is mentioned in this post. Its interesting to see how far back the laws go in different countries.

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.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22652675
    The site I posted is not the original but is a copy of the original that Tim Berners-Lee kept.

    I found this to be really helpful if anyone is interested in the history of wikis. Wikipedia is one of the most popular wiki websites, but not the first.
