The Birth of "Web Science"

The Web Science Research Initiative was launched on Thursday by MIT and the University of Southampton. It aims to establish a new multidisciplinary field of science to study both the social and technological issues surrounding the development of the World Wide Web and other web-like information structures.

The new publication, Foundations and Trends in Web Science could make interesting reading for those interested in the past and future of the web, as an object of scientific study.
