100 Ideas That Changed the Web book
100 Ideas That Changed the Web by Jim Boulton, curator of our WEB@30 exhibition.
This innovative title looks at the history of the Web from its early roots in the research projects of the US government to the interactive online world we know and use today. Fully illustrated with images of early computing equipment and the inside story of the online world's movers and shakers, the book explains the origins of the Web's key technologies, such as hypertext and mark-up language, the social ideas that underlie its networks, such as open source, and creative commons, and key moments in its development, such as the movement to broadband and the Dotcom Crash. Later ideas look at the origins of social networking and the latest developments on the Web, such as The Cloud and the Semantic Web. It provides an informed and fascinating illustrated history of our most used and fastest-developing technology.
