Quote of the Day: June 8th - Timothy Berners-Lee


QUOTE OF THE DAY: June 8th - Timothy Berners-Lee


London-born M.I.T. professor Sir Timothy Berners-Lee (born on this day in 1955) is credited with creating the World Wide Web and has often shared his thoughts on the W.W.W. and its evolution ...

"I don't believe in the sort of eureka moment idea. I think it's a myth. I'm very suspicious that actually Archimedes had been thinking about that problem for a long time. And it wasn't that suddenly it came to him."

"I just had to take the hypertext idea and connect it to the TCP and DNS ideas and ... Ta-Da! - the World Wide Web."

"Legend has it that every new technology is first used for something related to sex or pornography. That seems to be the way of humankind."

"Anyone who has lost track of time when using a computer knows the propensity to dream, the urge to make dreams come true and the tendency to miss lunch."

"The Web does not just connect machines, it connects people."
