This innovative title looks at the history of the Web from its early roots in the research projects of the US government to the interactive online world we know and use today. Fully illustrated with images of early computing equipment and the inside story of the online world's movers and shakers, the book explains the origins of the Web's key technologies, such as hypertext and mark-up language, the social ideas that underlie its networks, such as open source, and creative commons, and key moments in its development, such as the movement to broadband and the Dotcom Crash. Later ideas look at the origins of social networking and the latest developments on the Web, such as The Cloud and the Semantic Web. Following the design of the previous titles in the series, this book will be in a new, smaller format. It provides an informed and fascinating illustrated history of our most used and fastest-developing technology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""100 Ideas That Changed the Web", is every person's insider guide to how the internet came to be. From the 1934 Belgium vision for an "electronic telescope" to the social sharing sites like Facebook we now use 24/7, the book dissects every major milestone in web development. But don't think that you have to be a computer whiz to enjoy-each idea is broken down in fun anecdotes and startling facts that will make you appreciate (and totally school everyone else) on our modern day lifeline that is the internet." - "NYLON" "Accessible history of how the Web has developed over the last 50 years." - Bookseller Buyer's Guide "New book looks at the history of most significant invention of our lifetime." - Esquire
