Web History 

Permanent location of 'Web History'

A wonderfully done timeline of the history of the Internet. I think it’s a little oddly lacking for the current stuff – a lot of discussions of browser releases in the 90s, but neither Chrome nor Safari’s releases are mentioned, at all. Python (the general purpose language, which I don’t believe anyone uses without some Web-specific framework on top of it for producing Web stuff) is mentioned, so is Perl and PHP. And Ruby on Rails. Also no mention of HTML5, CSS3, WHATWG or other acronyms that are part of pushing the Web forward today.

It is very nice though. On iOS – and, I’m sure, other touch-enabled operating systems – the navigational arrows are replaced with swipe gestures.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
