Blogs, vlogs, wikipedia, open source, cyberspace. These are such familiar terms these days. It seems like the web has been around for a long time, at least since I became more involved in it back in 1991 when I swapped being an abstract painter to being a web designer. After reading the latest Wired magazine about how the web really picked up speed, I’m excited to be a part of it! Imagine being one of the people who got the ball rolling with the idea of “hyperlinks” that would connect, indirectly, each and every web page and allow any Joe to submit and access online media and information.
The web has grown by giant leaps and bounds, from the initial small science community website to, well, a gigantic cyberspace. This article, “We are the Web“, by Kevin Kelly, in the August issue of Wired, pretty much sums up the whole launch toward what we know of today as the Web.
