How the Social Web Came To Be (part 1, part 2) is a slideshow history from Trebor Sholz, for his class on social media. Very solid, rich stuff.

Another excellent link from your site, Bryan. The Internet has an incredible potential to do things the traditional media cannot do by themselves (and I am speaking as someone who has worked for years with traditional media, particularly print). There's a beauty to it -- its the realization of the Global Village -- a mass platform that is personal, open and accessible.
If we can tap into the positive qualities in a positive way, I think a lot of social progress can be made.

Well put, Alexandra! I'm glad you see the beauty, too.
pete, I think I caught your first link when it appeared (http://infocult.typepad.com/infocult/2004/10/history_of_soci.html). That second one, the Google vid, is very nice, too.
