The Inventor of the World Wide Web Has His Own Blog

The Inventor of the World Wide Web finally has his own blog. When I read this news, I was happy and surprised at the same time. Now I can look at the writing and words of a man that single handedly changed the way we retreive and access this huge and immense repository of information called the World Wide Web. You can read the full story which follows:

" Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, has begun to write his own blog. The news has caused a ripple around the blogging community with hundreds of comments posted on the first message.

While Berners-Lee has doubtless had many opportunities to address the web audience and indeed has occasionally done so as the Director of the World Wide Web Consortium, this is the first time that he has taken to writing publicly from a personal viewpoint.

The first post merely explains that while he has access to creating web pages, he wonders what this blogging thingy is all about and has decided to try it. He has since said that the blog is intended to be mostly concerned with 'geeky semantic web stuff mostly'. Any questions relating to the operation of the W3C should be addressed to the working groups.

In his typical low key fashion Lee simply began writing his blog without fanfare and it took a couple of days before it was noticed by the blogging community. There are now some 455 comments to the first message, many of which are either awed to be commenting on the blog of the web's founder or simply thanking him."
