    Default www is 20 years old

    Is it already 20 years since Tim Berners-Lee authored "Information Management: A proposal" and set the technology world on fire?



    Back in 1989, Berners-Lee was a software consultant working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research outside of Geneva, Switzerland. On March 13 of that year, he submitted a plan to management on how to better monitor the flow of research at the labs. People were coming and going at such a clip that an increasingly frustrated Berners-Lee complained that CERN was losing track of valuable project information because of the rapid turnover of personnel. It did not help matters that the place was chockablock with incompatible computers people brought with them to the office.

    "When two years is a typical length of stay, information is constantly being lost. The introduction of the new people demands a fair amount of their time and that of others before they have any idea of what goes on. The technical details of past projects are sometimes lost forever, or only recovered after a detective investigation in an emergency. Often, the information has been recorded, it just cannot be found."

    Is really only that short a period since Sir Tim Berners-Lee a Brit did it? Some how it seems much longer. See how we Brits are generous to the rest of you, we give you gifts all the time, now give us some money please so our banks can loose it all again
