Welcome to O.G.CAT: an archive of "Old Guides" (and tutorials) produced through the Center for the Advancement of Teaching in ancient times. For up-to-date information, please visit our wiki.

How the Web Works

These pages support a seminar series called How the Web Works, created by Bart Everson, the Center's Media Artist, from 2000 to 2006. As we put it way back when, "The series explores the concepts behind the technology of the World Wide Web, and aims to increase understanding of an information space that more and more of us are using daily." Much of this information is still relevant, in broad terms, to how the web works today; some of the details may be dated.

Older Tutorials

These pages were developed in support of workshops from 2001 and are included for historical completeness. The information provided may no longer be relevant.
