- The W W W W
- Wonderful World Wide Web
- Thank you Tim Berners-Lee!
Biggest boost to human ability to share information since moveable type.
- Now, here is the dirty truth:
- The Web is not an "app".
- The Web is not about visual design.
- The Web is about TEXT, and linking together.
- You can build all kinds of cool and trendy stuff on TOP of Web, and that's great.
- But bottom line,
if it doesn't resolve to TEXT: able to be searched, manipulated, and READ,
and if it doesn't link to other pieces of TEXT
— it's not Web.
