@entreprecariat [about the banner of your post] this image reinforce the idea that apple "invented" the touchscreen... but it has been around since the 90's at least: https://www.popularmechanics.com/culture/web/a14764511/a-crt-touchscreen-from-the-90s-shows-how-far-weve-come/
i'm aware it is not the topic of your essay, just that maybe using this image as a banner is not the best choice :)
thanks for building an history of web interface by the way!

ok, I tried to put together a tentative chronology of this idea of Interface Industrialization, connecting the emergence of web apps, the invention of the infinite scroll, the appearance of syndication and aggregation, the introduction of smartphones and thus the swipe gesture.

L'emergenza per il Covid-19 è una ghiotta occasione per il vampiro-succhiadati #Google di entrare nelle scuole.

Gli/Le insegnanti della scuola pubblica, difatti, vengono costretti dalla dirigenza ad accettare i termini di servizio di Google sui dati personali (basati sulla legge californiana) con la motivazione che la partecipazione ad un organo collegiale è richiesta da contratto».
