I meant to blog about the web turning 15 a couple of days ago and forgot. Mostly, I wanted to point out that if the web is 15 years old, there are many teens who are younger than the web and therefore have grown up not knowing a world without the web
For me, I remember my first time seeing Mosaic and the web when I went with a school librarian friend, Ellen Berne, to MIT to see this thing called the web. We looked at the dead sea scrolls and were totally amazed.
Now, seeing primary source materials on the web doesn’t amaze me in quite the same way. Think about the teens and pre-teens you know. What makes technology amazing to them?
BTW, the BBC posted a great timeline of the past 15 years on the web on their site.
