re: Knowing the Web's History is Critical to Its Present and Future VIEW POST


Yaaas! I love studying the history of the web... also the history of AI is illuminating :D

Just found the Internet History Podcast today and listened to the history of Google's rise to internet greatness emerging from the ashes of dotcom era...


Lately, I've been working on the history surrounding Bitcoin.. and continue digging into the histories of a number of related areas...


I'm def bookmarking thehistoryoftheweb.com ! Thanks


Brian M's podcast is fantastic. I can listen to episodes all day. Ran into Chris Wilson recently (who has his own episode re: Mosaic) @ the Chrome Dev Summit. He hit me with more gems. It's an awesome podcast.


maybe you already listen to Libre Lounge librelounge.org/ there is a good mix of historical context with the latest in FOSS.

TheCryptoconomy is my favorite bitcoin podcast, which in a way is mostly history, since it's audio of essential papers\essays. There are cypherpunk episodes, bittorrent, history of money, about the original MIT hackers, all kind of fundamental technical\social topics re: bitcoin... I really like it so I made a page organizing episodes by category

"True stories from the dark side of the Internet
This is a podcast about hackers, breaches, APTs, hacktivism, cybercrime, and all the things that dwell on the hidden parts of the network. This is Darknet Diaries."

Charlie Schrem's Untold Stories are all interviews w people who were part of bitcoin's early history.

ok... so this one isn't tech related (tho maybe everything is in it's own way), but I find very engaging:

All these are available via apple podcasts, which I like to use as a search engine.. then able to search really well within my curated collection, but also search widely (if not exhaustively) for whichever topic I'm trying to get deeper to the backstory of.

Thanks! I'm looking forward to spending more time w thehistoryoftheweb and that internet history podcast both... love the huge sources I can really dive into
