    1. A nice book for browsing -- 100 chapters of inventions that "changed the web." Some are unexpected and fascinating -- the Mundamen, the Blair Witch Project, Xanadu, Drudge -- and others are obvious: markup languages, Apache, micro-blogging, etc.Each chapter is a 1-2 minute read. I read them five at a time for a couple weeks. Each chapter has some good history around the given topic. There was lots of stuff I didn't know.Not very deep, but it doesn't claim to be. A fun read.


    2. A thoroughly enjoyable and interesting history of the internet and web in 100 ideas. It’s also beautifully illustrated.I would have liked some of the essays to be longer and more detailed but the format probably limits space and doesn’t allow that.


    3. This was a very interesting book that i could read easily and very quickly .i loved finding out all the facts about everything that has happen over the years about the web i give this 5 stars because i thought it was very interesting and highly informative


    4. Awesome compilation about the things that have shaped the internet into what it is today. It's amazing to think that all these things, cinluding the internet, were created by people's imaginations. Simply amazing!



    5. I won the book via giveaways and found that it was great for dipping into and really informative, would make a brilliant stocking filler for anyone obsessed by the Internet.



    6. Great book. The ideas the author select proves how new software developer are thinking. They invest time in developing on the cloud. Also, use web responsibe web design to focuse in mobile first.This book compiles the ideas that lead society to use the web as the main tool to work and entretain.


    7. a very good reference on the history of the digital trends that we know today. it's nice to know the story behind the once popular technology or web services such as Geocities, Hotmail, IRC, Napster, Netscape, Mosaic etc. All stories are kept short in one or two pages only.
