Writing the history of the internet:
Written 20 years ago by Rosenzweig. Internet, two perspectives:
Attributing to the cold war, to ensure that communications still continue and build the infrastructure of ARPA, DARPA by state leaders, scientists and the military. Top down perspective.
Public tool or utility: a bottom up usage from the public, an open internet. Used by graduates students, building the internet as an infrastructure.
1960s: young people protesting against the patriarchy and the Vietnam war. Revolutions: Rights movements, feminism, sexual revolution, etc.
The internet was thought as another venue in which the people could take over and influence and not leave it to the elites. Opening and sharing the internet for the betterment of the community.
Web 1.0: could not interact with the internet, in 1990s, static sites.
Web 2.0: 2000s revolution of more interactive internet: ex. Facebook, blogs (commenting), YouTube.
