A fascinating insight into the man who invented the web.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Weaving the Web: The Past, Present and Future of the World Wide Web by its Inventor (Hardcover)
This book provides a unique insight into the thoughts and experiences of the man who essentially is responsible for the communications revolution. Like many people, I had heard of Tim Berners-Lee, but knew little about what he had actually accomplished and given to mankind. I believe in twenty years time, when we look back, Tim Berners-Lee will be hailed as one of the great minds of the 20th century. His contribution to mankind will be seen as enormous. But what struck me, after reading this book, was Berners-Lee's modesty mixed with a real passion for goodness that the Web will hopefully bring to mankind. Unlike many other books about the net and the web that I have read, there is a sense of drama and genuine vision in Weaving the Web not found in others. If you are remotely interested in the future, then this book should be taken seriously.
