The Roundup: WWW hypertext project publishing day anniversary news

On this day in 1990, the vision for the World Wide Web was laid out.


Today, in 1990, T. Berners-Lee and R. Cailliau first publicly described the WorldWideWeb: Proposal for a HyperText Project. This foundational idea of the WWW as we know it was briefly summed up as “a way to link and access information of various kinds as a web of nodes in which the user can browse at will.” Nowadays, the original concept is rather polluted with paywalls, memberships, pop-ups, pop-unders, and even threats such as drive-by malware attacks. Here on Club386 there are none of those new-fangled pollutants, but you are welcome to subscribe to the good old-fashioned newsletter. Please enjoy the extra news picks today and have a great weekend.
