How the Social Web Came to Be (Part2)

Trebor Scholz, collectivate.net, Sept 17, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Trebor Scholz has posted the second part of his length presentation on the history of social networking. It's interesting to look at social networking retrospectively, though when he asks, "is the history of the social web the history of mainstream culture?" the answer seems to be "yes". My own perspective is different, of course, and I see many of the companies formed and the books published as things that happened after the fact as people began to cash in on the phenomenon.
