Skim through our archives, and you'll see Gapers and Chicago-based web firm 37signals go way back. But lately, with the success of its developments like Backpack and Ruby on Rails, the rest of the world is catching on. Case in point: this glowing coverage in Salon. As the Web turns 10, Farhad Manjoo looks at its current direction and sees the creativity of Jason Fried and his colleagues at the vanguard, "pioneering an entire business philosophy designed to make the Web great."
