    I would like to know everyones favorite article/link on Tim and the guy who developed NS (Gee my brain is a sleep today, what is his name???)

    And any other neat links on the histroy of the internet and the web please.

    P.S. I know this is not strictly a authoring question, but I would like to think it would be of interest to a number of people. (Darn should be). Then again it couldn't be more "web building" than these two . eh eh eh ....

    Tim Berners-Lee (spell the name right) is credited as the inventor of the World Wide Web, and is the Director of the World Wide Web Consortium.

    ravirajm reactivated a pretty old thread!

    Anyway, it's very interesting to read Tim Berners-Lee's pages hosted at w3's site, see http://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/. Don't miss http://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/Kids.html (the "named anchors" are not correct.)
