Don’t Fear The Internet is a video series designed to introduce you to the basics of the internet and website programming.
Video #1 is at the bottom of the page – they are listed in order of release date rather than the order you should probably view them.
This video series was created by designer/typographer Jessica Hische and her web developer husband Russ Maschmeyer who are both well respected in their fields of expertise.

As human beings, we get used to “the way things are” really fast. But for designers, the way things are is an opportunity … Could things be better? How? In this funny, breezy talk, the man behind the iPod and the Nest thermostat shares some of his tips for noticing — and driving — change.
Artist and TED Fellow Aparna Rao re-imagines the familiar in surprising, often humorous ways. With her collaborator Soren Pors, Rao creates high-tech art installations — a typewriter that sends emails, a camera that tracks you through the room only to make you invisible on screen — that put a playful spin on ordinary objects and interactions.
