History of the Web

Many of you have mentioned the remarkably young ages of those responsible for the foundation of the web. I've observed that those responsible for the progression of the web via sites like Google, Twitter, and Facebook were young contributors, too.

Having grown up with the web, I feel it only natural that it advance with us into our future. While some of us are confused by the technicalities, programs like multimedia journalism studies and this very class will help shed light on ideas and the ways in which we can contribute.

The grad student from MIT is proof that patience and perseverance pays off, even when you don't know what to expect of the ending result. And, even when a room of people is laughing at you.

A ridiculous Apple commercial from 1984. Please note the floppy discs!
