Sir Tim Berners-Lee Gives Congress Vision Of The Future by K.C. Jones
The title pretty much tells the tale. Nice summary of what Berners-Lee had to say to Congress. He is, of course, the inventor of the World Wide Web. It’s hard to come up with many inventions that have so thoroughly impacted the world like the Web. Automobiles? Air travel? Telephones? Cellular telephones? Satellites? Credit cards? The personal computer? Oh yeah, and the web is 17 years old as an invention, 10 years old as a part of most people’s lives. The evolution of the Internet and the Web is like a great sci fi story but with entirely unrealistic time frames.
