As is always the way with the Internet and the discovery of resources and stimulus, the best are found by chance and this is a prime example of that. I find this infographic especially interesting as it both made me reflect on how young digital technologies really are, and it made me feel old as I can remember when much of these started. I can still remember signing up for a Hotmail account when it first started, not to mention using the Bulletin Board System. Anyway, reminiscing aside, this infographic will be a useful stimulus piece when exploring the emergence of technologies and studying their impact. I am sure that this will help most students to better understand the rate at which the technologies they use and mostly take for granted have developed.
