Epic 2015

Via Techcrunch, a great site for tracking web 2.0 developments, comes a pointer to Robin Sloan and Matt Thompson’s excellent Flash animation: Epic 2015.

Created in late 2004 and then updated in 2005, Epic 2015 it is a “history” of the web that includes the launch of Amazon in 1994, the creation of Google in 1998, their merger into Googlezon in 2008, and the news wars of 2010. It is about 8 minutes long, expertly produced and quite thought provoking. News, what is it and how we receive it, seems to be changing even faster that Robin and Matt predict.

Watch Epic 2015.
