Flashy History of the Net

Yahoo! Netrospective: 10 years, 100 moments of the Web Logged it here as I am on a bit of a history of the Net thing. Yes these 100 moments all make good sense. Nicely presented. I hope they keep this working for a long time, as we might want to do an “alternative 100 moments” some time, after all history is always history from a particular class perspective. Yahoo is sure part of the capitalist class, but we might like to get more subtle… they also broke some new ground (or did they?)

Update: Monday, 14 March 2005 – they have with this little thing anyway. Each photo when clicked opens a small item on the event with the ability to comment! We are in Web 2.0 here… I can link to a particular one of the 100 discussions. Tag it here and we are loosely joined.

For all that reading the history I want to see a better one, but the concept is great. It needs to cover more than 10 years. The concept here is great. I can imagine a page like this for every Movie for example with ongoing discussions about the scenes. Or books too with a photo for every chapter!
