Fire up your Netscape Navigators! Alli and Jen talk to Jay Hoffmann, author of The History of the Web, about his research into the early internet.
The History of the Web is a weekly newsletter that began as a place for coders to reminisce about CSS and Bulletin Board software.

The story of the Web (the public-facing network of pages that everyone has access to) is arguably the most important sociological endeavor of our time.
This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) chat with Jay Hoffmann, author of The History of the Web, about his inspiration and research into the early internet, and the proto-communities that formed online in the ’90s around weblogs, browser wars, grief, and virtual pets.

When you post something on the web, it should belong to you, and not a corporation.
The Internet was originally a peer to peer decentralized network of networks connecting diverse nodes. The ability to move and share content over the Internet evolved through file transfer to gopher to hypertext transport protocol and html, i.e. the World Wide Web. The early web co-evolved with zine culture, with many small independent content sites appearing, and experiments in content sharing using technologies like trackback, pingback, and Really Simple Syndication (RSS).
Over the last decade or so, the Internet has exploded. All media has become digital; the Internet has become the platform of choice for distribution. With the rise of social networks, smaller content nodes were swept into sites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, blogs fell aside, and content sharing was mediated by evolving new platforms created and managed by corporations supported primarily by advertising. Content producers and consumers became “the product,” sold to advertisers in an ecosystem that mixes traditional and social media sources. The Internet has is somewhat less decentralized, replaced to an extent by managed broadband and cellular networks.
