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 ....

"Weaving the Web" by Sir Tim is definitely worth a read

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.)
