Learn the Complete History of the Web with This Timeline

Illustration for article titled Learn the Complete History of the Web with This Timeline

So how does this whole world wide web thing work? Cables, man. Websites, h tee tee pees and computers. And it's all a pretty new thing, right? Well not quite, the history of the web is a lot longer than you'd expect. John Allsopp of Web Directions created a timeline showing the "key dates, browsers, technologies and ideas in the history of the World Wide Web" that dates back to 1910 and goes right up until today. Even if you consider yourself a professional Internet surfer, you'll probably learn a thing or two cruising through the timeline here. [Web Directions via The Presurfer]

Interesting, but I agree with Citizen-Kang. Nothing happened in the history of the web between 1941 and 1960? I think a few universities and couple of guys by the names of Licklider, Kleinrock and Roberts might have something to say about what was happening in those intervening years.
