Sir Timothy Berners-Lee tells Congress What’s What

2 03 2007

Ars Technica has an interesting article about the appearance of Sir Timothy Berners-Lee before a Congressional sub-committee on Telecomunications and the Internet.  Contrary to statments made by Al Gore, Sir Timothy Berners-Lee actually did invent the internet. 

That universality—the ability for disparate hardware, software, and languages to coexist in the same medium—has been one of the drivers of the Web’s massive growth in the last decade, along with the availability of open and royalty-free standards that make such universality possible.

It’s an interesting read.  Just goes to show you that the things that work best are the things that work with everyone.
