I’m a big fan of TED (and so is DZ). They send me an email about once a week with highlighted talks about a lot of great, intellectual speeches that usually make you think. Anyway, they just posted a talk by Kevin Kelly talking about the next 5,000 days of the web (can’t call it internet ’cause Eric will cry) and what’s happened in its first 5000 days (approximately).
If you want to learn more about the web, how it works, where it’s come from, and where it’s going, check out the video below. I dig it.
*Side note for clarification so that Eric will quit crying, the internet is technically over 10k days old, if you count ARPANET, the original DOD ‘internet’. This video, this post, and this timeline is about the World Wide Web, not the internet. The World Wide Web being the advent of hypertext systems by which pages and content could be linked together, creating the basis for what is commonly referred to as ‘the web’.*
