How the Social Web Came to Be

A two part slideshow about the history of the social web.
They’re both quite long – and it starts right at the beginning – with monks in 1746 connecting to a battery. It then jumps quite quickly to Vannear Bush (1945), and then almost 260 slides later we have the spread of different social networks around the world – and the fact that women are more active in them than men.
Takes a while to look at both sets of slides but well worth it.
