Work like the web

Crucial to understanding the technologies is coming up with a frame that enables and empowers educators and students alike to think like the web, which inspired technologist and patron saint of trailing edge technologies, Jon Udell, to come up with a list of 7 ways to think like the web in 2011. The list was adopted by Doug Belshaw in 2014 to frame a broader manifesto for digital literacies, namely:

  1.  Have a corner of the web you control
  2. Work openly by default
  3. Ensure your data is readable by both humans and machines

The need for thinking like the web, or a broader vision of digital literacy, was finally starting to gain some traction and for some Domain of One’s Own became an ideal platform for doing just this kind of work.
