This is an article that speaks to me perhaps more than it should. It looks back at the early days of the World Wide Web - the first decade, before Web 2.0, back when it was 'my website', not 'about me' on someone else's web service. The core of that early web, writes Olia Lialina, wasn't the 'home page' per se, it was the link - and that's what's disappearing from today's web. What will the future look like? What will we say? "What? Address bar? Website? You could type? Was there a sort of typewriter? Delegating, adapting, forgetting." Great read; don't miss this.
