If not for open web standards, you'd need a different web browser to access different web pages, and as for mobile, fuhgettaboutit!

Luckily, web standards like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, when properly used, allow us to read, shop, schmooze, dish, post, check in, and share everything from our kids' class pictures to our most deeply cherished beliefs―whether we're accessing the web via smartphone, tablet, or virtually any desktop browser.

But this utopia of information access we take for granted today was no accident. We owe it all to two words: Web Standards. For your pleasure and edification, we've collaborated with web experts Eric Meyer and Jeffrey Zeldman, the visionary founders of An Event Apart, the design conference for people who make websites, to create a fun and informative romp through the pages of web standards history.

Journey with us into the recent past―and who knows, what you learn may enable you to make your contribution the next major bullet point in the timeline of the Internet!
