Blogging

Is that really a word?

a short history
A short history
  • It began as WEB LOG
  •  Two professors from Bond University in Australia introduced the term in 1995 at a conference introducing their paper “Exploiting the World-Wide Web for Electronic Meeting Document Analysis and Management””
slide4

the paper itself was aimed at the recording of electronic meetings, but the processes described what eventually turned into todays blogs.

  • There were chat rooms during this time that were similar to blogs but you had to be a member of the room to add information
  • Robotwisdom.com is an example of an original web log which started in 1997
slide5

The origins of modern blogging are argued about almost as much as the question….What is blogging?

  • One thing is for sure blogs began as websites or webpages that provided links and comments to other pages, and its is from this basis that modern blogs emerged.
slide7

In early 1999 Peter Merholz coins the term blog after announcing he was going to pronounce web blogs as “wee-blog”, that was then shortened to blog.

slide8

As blogging started to grow in 1999, the first portal dedicated to listing blogs was launched, Brigitte Eaton launched the Eatonweb Portal. Eaton evaluated all submissions by a simple assessment that the site consist of dated entries, one of the criteria used today when identifying a blog.

slide9

In May 1999, Scott Rosenberg at Salon.com writes one of the first media articles on the emergence of weblogs and refers to the growing number of “Web Journalists”.

slide10

In August 1999, Pyra Labs, today owned by Google, launches the free Blogger blogging service, that for the first time provides an easy set of tools for anyone to set up a blog. Other services launched around the same time include Pitas and Groksoup.
