Web and Networking History Timelines 

With thanks to the Web History Project and Center, the Computer History Museum, Dipity.com, the Digibarn, Stanford University Libraries, CommerceNet, and the Internet Archive


These timelines let you view and submit events in Web and networking history. You can also contribute links, software, data, images, video, and other media.


The events in these timelines have been checked by people who saw or participated in those events first-hand, or by recognized historical experts on that topic.


If you are registered as a first-hand source for a timeline, your changes take effect immediately. If you are registered as a user, they appear in the "comments" section while they are reviewed.


The timelines are hosted courtesy of our friends at Dipity.com, the leading company for time-based Web software. Several are used by Working Groups in the Internet History Program at the Computer History Museum (computerhistory.org).
