Weaving the Web

I’ve just finished reading Weaving the Web by Tim Berners-Lee. It’s a great, easy-to-read book full of interesting insights into the creation of the web (Did you know that Tim’s original intention was for all web browsers to be able to edit a web page? It’s taken over ten years for wiki’s to realise this dream, albeit in a slightly different way). The last few chapters are devoted to Tim’s and the W3C’s continuing work towards the evolution of the web. There are also some insightful comments about the social nature of the web which is refreshing from someone I had previously considered to be a hard-core “techie”! He points a number of times to habits and developments that hint towards blogs and “social software”. All-in-all a great read and all the better for explaining more about the tool that many of us use every single day.
