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]
