A New Interview and a Window Back in Time - Tim Berners-Lee
OK, I admit it: even though I’ve experienced the Web as it’s been evolving I’m still enamored by it all, over 10 years later. November 4th’s W3C Weekly News listed some interviews with Tim Berners-Lee, including his November 1st NPR interview, Smallest Circuits / Tim Berners-Lee. Absolutely fascinating. Although it’s an audio interview, you can order a transcript, too.
I also clicked over to a 1997 Time Magazine interview, The Man Who Invented the Web, and I was glued to it from start to finish, finding it to be an engaging view back in time about how Berners-Lee came up with what turned out to be the World Wide Web.
You can also read Berners-Lee’s own account in his 1999 book, Weaving the Web. It may be out of print now, but it’s not hard to find, including via amazon.com and other bookstores. Berners-Lee also provides excerpts, including a link to Chapter 1 via Harper-Collins. It’s certainly a book I recommend.
P.S. I wrote, actually spoke, today’s post using voice recognition software. I will be writing lots more about that in the days ahead. People often tell me that my writing sounds like I’m talking. Now that will really be true!
