Re-framing the World Wide Web - August Black


In this talk, I would like to present research about how technical standards, protocols, and application programming interfaces (API) shape the aesthetic, functional, and affective nature of our most dominant mode of online communication, the World Wide Web (WWW). I examine the politically charged and contentious battle over browser market share and how this drives the seemingly "open" technical development of standards and the implementation of new features. I present a new and alternative browser prototype and communication framework called the Underweb that provides partial solutions to the problem space of the WWW.

Parallel to the non-linear development dynamic of the amorphous electronic infrastructure of the WWW, the Underweb provides a more user-elegant set of technologies that gives developers and users the ability to not only read, but also to write, edit and publish in this system without third-party involvement.
