What I’m going to do today is sit­u­ate dig­i­tal meth­ods as an approach, as an out­look, in the his­to­ry of Internet-related research. I’d like to divide up the his­to­ry of Internet research large­ly into three eras, the first being where we thought of the Web as a kind of cyberspace.

For inno­va­tion, for ideas to happen.
