And his man created ...

    Actually, you probably noticed that a blog with that name wasn’t here before. “Why is it needed?” You ask.
    The blog is open to all and is dedicated not only to blogs as such, but also to the bloggers themselves. What can be published here? Yes, almost everything that will be useful for the blogosphere - stories, ideas, facts, tips, your success stories, blog releases, etc. I think you don’t need to chew, so ...

    Have you decided to look?
    Miraculously, then let's move on to the topic, so as not to tire our dear habravchan.

    Since this post is opening with us, I want to devote it to history. History of one man, which is probably very few of you know remember, but 14 years ago, he was recognized by millions.
    If you recognize the inscription in the picture, then you understand who will be discussed;)

    So whom (or what?) Did the man create?

    “A Better Way to Browse” - this article inspired 20-year-old Justin Hall to start learning HTML and create his own page on the Internet .
    In his diary, later, he writes:
    In January 1994, I read some HTML information on the web, installed a copy of MacHTTP on my Powerbook 180 , and marked out my first Justin's Home Page . The first entry contained several links to HTML information, some notes about my college, a photo with me and Oliver North , a clip where the lead singer Jane's Addiction says, “I'm acidic too, but I won’t throw shoes at you” and list of my favorite websites. Our Swarthmore College has been intermittently connected to the network; every time my computer crashed or rebooted, I had to go around all the hostels and ask everyone to restart their systems so that everything worked correctly.

    The first visit to my page outside college was on January 23, 1994.

    The number of page visitors grew very fast. But the college’s computer network could not withstand such a load and Justin was forced to look for another solution.
    Turning to a specialized store (WiReD), he immediately managed to get everything he needed to continue working on his diary:
    ... She asked me for my e-mail, then I gave her a link to my site. Seeing a picture of Cary Grant taking acid, she laughed and I joined her

    By August 1994, all Justin’s pages had been transferred to the office equipment of the store, which was later renamed HotWired. And Justin himself was hired as the junior editor of the department responsible for publishing online.
    I had the opportunity to speak to the audience and talk about my work experience, and I noticed that everyone supported my point of view. Web technologies do not use their full potential. There are so many possibilities for people to have a wider view of this world. Take a look around, you can all contribute too. Take someone who knows an interesting story and invite him to share it with everyone on the network. Stories that millions can read are a great opportunity to make the Internet and web technologies the most used.

    And he was really right, I think it’s not even worth explaining why :)
    But still, more than one year passed before users began to actively join this sphere. The term “blog” itself appeared only 5 years later, in 1999, when Peter Merholz, creator of the blog Peterme, laid out the term weblog in two parts - “we blog” (“we keep a diary”). On the basis of the word blog, a new verb was formed - "to blog", meaning "to perform actions aimed at maintaining an online diary." And in August of that year, Pyra Labs, based in San Francisco, created the Blogger portal . It was the first free, open source and extremely easy to use tool that gave impetus to the creation of the blogosphere.

    As Justin admits in his diary:
    I created all this on my Powerbook. And it cost me nothing. I can keep a diary from anywhere, from anywhere in the world. And maybe it’s for the better, or for the worse, but no one can control, edit what I write. This is a dream.

    Now he also continues to keep his notes, but now in a new modern format: GameLayers , PMog .

    PS I hope that my efforts to collect and translate information were not in vain and this entry was interesting to you. Create, write, publish! :)
