18 January 2017
Members please login to watch the webinar recording
Tjarda de Haan, web archaeologist and guest e-curator at the Amsterdam Museum, shares her experiences with the 'excavation' of The Digital City: one of the first online community networks that operated on an European scale. The Digital City (De Digitale Stad, DDS) was launched in 1994 in Amsterdam and was taken offline in 2001. DDS was inspired by the Community Networks movement in the US and Canada and functioned as a Free-Net in the Netherlands. The project re:DDS is an attempt to reconstruct the virtual city in order to preserve the history of e-culture in Amsterdam.
