Web Design Timeline. The Real One.

Don’t Hassel the WWW is a new project by three brave students of last semester’s project “Timeline”, guided by Olia Lialina. Darja Daut, Susanne Müller and Lisa Hofmann staged the history of David Hasselhoff’s personal webpage.

How would it look in March 1993? July 1996? On Geocities? During the Dotcom craze? The students investigated the styles of Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and current aesthetics of cloud computing. However, the most interesting part of their work might be their recreation of a blind spot in web historiography: the obscure, under-researched time in between the burst of the Dotcom bubble in 2001 and the rise of social networks in 2006.
