25 old school websites for 25 years of the web

The web is 25 years old. Did you use it today? And yesterday? Wow, it’s really catching on.

Here are some old websites from 1994 to 1998, when the web was in full swing (or so we thought).

If you’ve got your own to share, do leave them in the comments section below.

Mobile and the arts: where to start?

For some arts organisations, the array of platforms and devices in digital is bewildering.

For small organisations, perhaps a theatre group, how is awareness and ultimately ticket sales to be improved? Beyond this, the prospect of actually engaging and collaborating via digital media can be daunting or perhaps feel like a pipe dream.

And for large arts organisations, how easy is it to compete with big brands, or big online-first non-profits such as the Khan Academy, when it comes to education and engagement online? Is a multi-pronged mobile strategy, featuring a number of apps and a responsive website, the best approach?

Lots of questions! In this post I'm framing a talk I gave for IT4ARTS last week, at the Barbican. I've given some background and fleshed out the challenge for the arts, in digital and on mobile.

I've also reviewed a number of mobile apps, looking in particular at the Tate, and there are also some references and jumping-off points to talks by those working and innovating at museums and galleries.


How do we bring the next billion people online?

This was the question framing the first talks at #Wired13 on Friday. There’s no question of the change the internet can affect for the developing world, but what hurdles are there before more wide scale adoption?

Speakers from three massively innovative companies, two producing hardware and one an operating system, gave their views on the democratization of technology, and indeed knowledge itself.

I’ll give a brief overview of each talk, to explain three different aspects to the challenge of putting the next 1bn online.


Start me up! A profile of Clickmodels, easy prototyping for designers

Web prototyping is continually evolving. The holy grail is perhaps a web app easily shared between management, developers and clients, with low latency, high performance and flexibility.

Clickmodels is trying to solve this problem, and I spoke to Jurriaan van Drunen, co-founder.


Crowd Sauce #2 - Siri, flash mobs and daschunds

Hello all readers and welcome to the second edition of our new thing, 'Crowd Sauce'.

No doubt this shabby pun is in use in many places on the internet, but here it denotes a round-up post, potentially replacing our weekly infographic, where we can relax and share some fun or interesting stuff (caveat: mostly pointless).

The categories will likely differ each week. Let’s go…

10 great examples of responsive design from around the world

Responsive design as a standard feature on a website is growing quickly.

There is no longer much of a debate over whether brands need a mobile site, as consumer demand dictates that sites need to be optimised for small screens.

The choice now is between a dedicated mobile site, an app, or responsive design. 

So to show how responsive design can be applied in practice, here are 10 examples from around the world...

The future isn’t bright for specialist mobile web developers

The decision to optimise a site for mobile or build a full mobile site that works on all handsets has always been a tricky one for marketers.

Mobile specialists have tended to opt for creating a ‘full’ mobile site that works on all handsets but with times changing, could the days of the 'mobile only' web developers be numbered?


Making sense of the B2B marketing mix

We recently launched our first B2B Internet Statistics Compendium, which sits separately from our main Internet Statistics Compendium and aims to make it easier for B2B marketers to find the relevant information needed to make sense of an increasingly complex and fast-changing marketing landscape.

There has been a great amount of B2B-focused marketing data published during recent months. In a sector which is becoming increasingly dependent on reaching out to new business across multiple channels, it has never been more important to get the mix right. 

Here are some key B2B marketing trends to keep an eye on...

Infographic: mobile app or website?

Alterian has waded into the mobile web vs app debate with a nice, tube map-style infographic which takes the view that a mobile website is the way forward. 

We've talked about the apps vs web debate on this blog for some time, and we tend to lean towards a mobile website, certainly as a first step into mobile commerce, but we also think there is plenty of room for both. 

As Stefan Tornquist wrote in a recent post on the issue, there is a middle ground here, and apps still have a role in companies' retention strategies, if there is a compelling reason to download and use them. 


The subjective web and digital marketing

The subjective web is the web we create for ourselves through customisation and personalisation. But is it all good news for marketers?


Google TV: will it finally deliver television-web convergence?

For nearly as long as the internet has been available to the general public, entrepreneurs and technologists have dreamed of the convergence of the television and the web. From WebTV to today's internet-enabled gaming consoles, the small screen and the internet have been introduced to each other.

But the type of convergence that many have predicted and sought to create has remained elusive. The world's biggest search engine, however, hopes to change that.
