  6. Stacking the Bricks: How the Blog Broke the Web

    I don’t agree with this - that the chronological format, and blogging software - somehow “broke” what was good about the early web, but it’s still interesting to consider.

  7. Brutalist Websites

    A nice collection of websites that look a lot more interesting than most, to remind us that the interesting web isn’t dead. (I don’t like the term ‘brutalist’ for these, but still.) (via @gilest)

    A way of creating WARC files of collections of pages as you browse them, which you can then download. They don’t archive them permanently, although the new beta looks like maybe they will? A bit? (via One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age)

  10. Overshare: the story

    I’ve only watched half of this, Justin Hall’s new film, so far and it’s already resulted in me spending way too much time re-reading old emails, poking at, and being far too nostalgic for the old days.

  11. Adactio: Journal—Web! What is it good for?

  14. My First Bookmarks

    The web bookmarks I used in 1995. They were originally written out on sheets of A4 paper, then at some point I made them into a web page. I don’t think browsers had bookmarking as a feature at first.

  15. Authenticity/Access | One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age

    On how historical web pages (such as Geocities) appear differently now, even if you have all the original assets. eg, browser rendering, text anti-aliasing, MIDI audio, screen resolutions, etc.

  16. The Web Is a Customer Service Medium (

    “The web is not, despite the desires of so many, a publishing medium. The web is a customer service medium. ‘Intense moderation’ in a customer service medium is what ‘editing’ was for publishing. … Turn your readers into members. Not visitors, not subscribers; you want members.”

  17. Internet Archaeology

    Some lovely “old” fragments of the web.
