Web Development History (WDH) is an ongoing project to chronicle the history of the internet from a developer perspective.
Who am I
I’m Richard MacManus, aka @ricmac. I was the founder of ReadWriteWeb, a leading tech blog from the Web 2.0 era. I’m currently a senior editor and columnist at The New Stack, a site that covers cloud native technologies.
WDH will be written as a blog that is regularly updated, but my ultimate goal is to turn it into a book. Given the scope of the project, I expect this will take me a while.
