Thoughts #3-1 | The Web is 25 years old….more or less a couple of years!

world_wide_web_TThe Web is about 25 years old, more or less 2-3 years, depending on which date you start counting from! In a time when technologies and the associated practices are changing so fast, this isn’t that young anymore! On a human scale, it’s already more than a quarter of a life, if one takes into account the longest life expectancy possible today.  A website has been set up to keep track of the various events and celebrations put together for this anniversary.

Moreover, as announced in my « event » section, the journal New Media & Society is running a special issue that will be published in 2016.
