It was on Christmas Day 1990 that a British computer scientist by the name of Tim Berners-Lee first demonstrated his new creation: the World Wide Web, available over the internet. He had it programmed to link information on any computer to information on any other one, and to allow that information to be shared.
An academic tool, he figured. Maybe with business possibilities.
Who could have known? Today, there are more than 200 million web sites. One is mine (www.kaystrom.com ).
On behalf of writers everywhere, I say a hearty: “Thanks, Tim!”
