The internet and computer technology in general is considered a “black box” to most people. There is an input and and output, but what happens in between? A great majority of the details of computer technology are hidden from us by engineers leaving the everyday young professional clueless. How Did I Get To This Website? guides the user through the story arc in which a they request the website, how it gets back to them in a human-legible context, and all the steps in between. It will be delightful, clear, concise, and what is necessary for understanding. This information is not only super relevant to young professionals, but also super relevant to the time we live in. Technology is not something we necessarily question all the time, but it’s a discussion we need to start having. This way, we can progress on this internet platform in a positive way, and be more conscious of our surroundings and the systems intact around us to create on.
