Happy 20th birthday, Web!

April 30, 2013

The first Web server began operation 20 years ago today. One of the better commemorations I’ve seen today is on the TED Blog, which summarized some general lessons on innovation from the “eureka” moment inventor Tim Berners-Lee had working on the first Web server.

Berners-Lee gave a Ted Talk of his own in 2009. First third or so in particular covers his early work on the Web, with fascinating stuff further in about the future of “linked data.”
