  • 1. The History of Web Design and The Internet By Miguel Igartua
  • 2. The Beginning
    • The internet had been in place since the late 1960’s
    • It was used for US military reasons
    • It was later used by academia in Universities
    • It was created by a man named Tim Berners-Lee
  • 3. Why was the interne developed?
    • It was made to correspond to people in other laboratories around the world. Later on in the years, it was used to look up info. Now the world wide web can be used for just about anything, paying bills, learning, playing games, etc.

    • Buttons with bevelled edges
    • Banners replacing headlines
  • 6. 3 rd Generation
    • The third generation of web design is all about interactive graphics, sound, animation, and 3D images.
  • 7. 4 th Generation
    • The forth generation is only an extension of the third. The only difference is it has some unique web-driven selling proposition
  • 8. Then and Now
    • The new browsers now give the designers the control that they didn’t have 6 years ago. Even small and big businesses use websites to help them grow, that right there should tell you how far web design and the internet as come.
  • 9. My Info Spot
    • First, I Google “The History of Web Design”.
