The Ten Most Influential Internet Moments of the Decade

Filed under
Web

Earlier today, the organisers of the Webby Awards announced their selection of the most influential moments on the Internet in the past decade.

In a mix of technological, political and commercial events, the Top Ten Moments of the Decade makes for an interesting snapshot of the period 2000 - 2009.

Almost always, the events chosen were enablers of future products, future trends, future means of sharing our lives.

In an apparent attempt to avoid prioritising the events, they are presented on the site in strict chronological order.

The year 2000 is represented by two events:

* Craigslist expands outside San Francisco
* The launch of Google AdWords

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
