My aim with this project is to document the hidden history of the open web, and to do this in a way that encourages contributions. Here are some ways to help.
Suggestions for people to feature permalink
Perhaps you have a story to tell of your involvement on the web, or you know of someone whose contributions should be included. In the first instance raise an issue. If you want to do the interview and writing, I'll be very happy to act as your editor.
Timeline additions permalink
What am I missing? I'd like the timeline to feature the key events in the development of the web platform. Raise an issue and I can add the data. Or you can submit a Pull Request, timeline events are created by adding a new file under
/events in the following format:
--- title: The W3C is formed date: '1994-10-01' image: false tags: events --- The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) was founded by Tim Berners-Lee at MIT.
Biography data permalink
I am trying to write reasonable biographies for anyone mentioned. These live under
/people with the following structure:
--- name: Rachel Andrew twitter: rachelandrew web: https://rachelandrew.co.uk image: false tags: people --- Text biog date here
You can create a PR or raise an issue to add data for someone who doesn't have a biography yet, correct or add to existing data.
