Quick break from Europe postings:
On August 6, 1991–15 years ago today–Tim Berners-Lee launched the World Wide Web with a message to the alt.hypertext newsgroup. In the message he says,” The WWW project merges the techniques of information retrieval and hypertext to make an easy but powerful global information system,” and provides the source code for his prototype line-mode browser, a GUI hypertext editor for NeXT, and a skeleton server daemon. From those humble beginnings, all of this. Thanks, Tim, and Happy Birthday WWW!
