really liked it

A nice book for browsing -- 100 chapters of inventions that "changed the web." Some are unexpected and fascinating -- the Mundamen, the Blair Witch Project, Xanadu, Drudge -- and others are obvious: markup languages, Apache, micro-blogging, etc.

Each chapter is a 1-2 minute read. I read them five at a time for a couple weeks. Each chapter has some good history around the given topic. There was lots of stuff I didn't know.

Not very deep, but it doesn't claim to be. A fun read.
