Our timeline looks at the history of new media and online journalism
from 1969 to 2010.

We are presenting it in two parts, with parallel sections on
"Technology/Services/Social" and "The Media."

The timeline was compiled by David Shedden, Library Director of the
Poynter Institute's Eugene Patterson Library.

We hope the timeline serves as a useful reference tool for journalists,
students, and researchers.

We also hope it helps preserve the history of new media and online
journalism, a history that isn't very new after all.
