Pioneers of the World Wide Web

This is a terrific podcast from The Economist, celebrating 30 years of the World Wide Web.

30 years!

Kenneth Cukier gets in the Babbage time machine and travels to 1989, when Sir Tim Berners-Lee wrote the famous memo that laid the foundations for the world wide web. Kenn speaks to some of the other key figures that influenced its invention, like Ted Nelson and Vint Cerf, and then asks what the WWW might look like in the future.

Well, I never. I didn’t realise this was a thing. The trailer looks amazing and you can visit the official site here.

I remember making paper airplanes with my Dad when I was little. Nothing on this scale though.
