Category Archives: Flipped Lectures
These videos together made up Flipped Lecture 3 which was all about the evolution of the web.
The main ideas I got from these videos includes:
- Separating form and content meant easy uploading for everyday users (blogs, videos etc)
- Syntax vs semantics ie. what you say and what you mean. Aparently we have to teach the internet semantics. ‘Cause that’s only going to end well…
- Users are in charge, we have to organise the data. And there’s a lot of data.
I think I’m going to finish on a quote from my dad. He said something about the fact that we’re moving into web 3.0 without fully understanding what web 2.0 is yet. Wheeeeeee!
I’ve started taking notes differently when I listen to lectures. My notes for part one of Download: The True Story Of The Internet look like this-
I watched part 1- Browser Wars. It’s about the world’s first graphical web browser and the trouble it caused in Silicon Valley. It was quite interesting, even though I knew a bit about the so called browser wars already.
In fact, unlike these people in the video below, I actually knew what a browser was before I watched this Browser Wars.
My dad sent me that video a few years ago so I could laugh at it. I made me a bit sad actually.
Anyway, I use Google Chrome as my browser and I’m happy to see how far they’ve come since being releassed in Spetember of 2008.
Anyway, I’m deviating from the doco a bit as it focused on the demolition of Netscape Navigator and the maliciousness of Microsoft in creating Internet Explorer to get rid of the competition. Although, I guess what goes around comes around as Internet Explorer is now no longer the most popular browser…
