A Good Synopsis of www - how, why and where it is heading,
This review is from: Weaving the Web: The Past, Present and Future of the World Wide Web by its Inventor (Hardcover)
An excellent read. As many have commented, not actually a techie book (per se) but about a technical subject. The author describes the multiple incarnations and the reasoning behind it. He then goes on to describw how he trys to promote it, use the InterNet (NOT the Web!)
If you're old enough there are reference to machines & formats that will allow you to reminisce :) And certainly dipicts a well known scene of multiple O/S with multiple Formats for multiple users.... HTML or no HTML - this will still remain.
The latter 2-3 chapters do wander in to the mid-to-distant future and at the very end religious (very worrying - technology v theology).
On the whole easily worth the money. Couldn't put it down, not bad for a non-manual book :)
