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.
