The internet circa 1981

We had our first web team meeting last night.  I think we’re all totally excited by the possibilities.  No one’s in it for money or glory, we simply want to bring this project into wonderful existence.

It’s definitely a different vibe than most of the other work that I do.  I rarely lead stuff that I have next to no competence on, but it’s going to be an interesting journey ahead.

Currently we’re looking at using a mysql backend with third party api’s over a ruby on rails framework and an ajax-ified front-end… Does that make any sense to anyone?  I’m barely grasping it all too.

Here’s a news report on the early stages of the internet.  Developers described it as something they just wanted to create, even though there was probably no money in it.

    what are you trying to do with the “web team”? just curious since i’m a software developer and saw you throwing around all those cool technologies. 🙂
