Looking back to the history of the web

This is a book review on a book I have yet to read, however I can't wait to pick up a copy of it. The book in question is about the history of design on the early web; which in my opinion is severely under studied due to the webs impermanence.

Internet Radio

Nightwave Plaza

An internet radio station that I've been listening to lately. They feature a lot of lesser known artists and play a range from vapourwave to future funk. Also its website reminds me of my first computer (which ran Windows 98).

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, by Hank Green

I recently finished reading this, and I have to say I am in love. The way Hank Green writes is weird yet refreshing. Also I’m pretty sure it’s the first time ever a cis man has actually written queer women accurately.

Looking Out The Window

An oldie but a goldie. It looks at windows as randomly placed frames that separate us from the outside world. The frame’s contents are constantly changing, yet we have no influence over them.
