Stumbled onto a very interesting article about Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the man who invented the World Wide Web. Really. He came up with the basis for all the cool (and not so cool) stuff we do in our browsers these days.
On Vanity Fair, Katrina Brooker posted quite a piece about Sir Tim, the beginnings of the Web, how it morphed quite distantly from how he envisions it, and what he’s doing about it. PYBT: “I Was Devastated”: Tim Berners-Lee, the Man Who Created the World Wide Web, Has Some Regrets.
And here’s his Wikipedia page: Tim Berners-Lee.
