I’m happy to announce that I’m now listed on TechArchives.Irish as one of the pioneers of the Irish web!
After extensive interviewing and collaboration with John Sterne, my testimony and timeline of those early days of the Irish web is now up at TechArchives.
It’s been a good opportunity to reflect on the differences between the tech scene, then and now. I was very idealistic 30 years ago at the possibilities that the web and internet technologies had to offer; nowadays, I’m a bit more grizzled and pragmatic. But I still have hope — particularly if we can apply this tech in a way that helps address climate change, in particular…. here’s to the next 30 years!
Anyway, I hope writing this down helps record the history of those great early years of the web. Please take a look.
