I’ve been in bed with fever recently and it got my thinking about how the digital industry was and how it is today.
Back when I started web design was a niche business, it was an add-on, an experiment and it was seen an expense. Now it is at the core of businesses, it is crucial to both marketing and day-to-day administration of the company and it is now seen as an investment.
The digital industry has grown up and is part of our lives now in a very irreversible way. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great archeological finds in our combined web history. Here are three of my favourites:
Safeplaces is from Flash’s early days and can best be described as an ambient interactive story. Do click around. There’s lots to see.
The Hospital is a wonderful interactive photography experience through an old defunct hospital.
We Come in Peach is a low-fidelity animated series that proves there really is no intelligent life out there.
…And more digging.
Which great archaeological sites do you have bookmarked?
