Just read an interesting article at the Ars Technica site. It seems that recently, the U.S. Congress was fortunate enough to have Sir Tim Berners-Lee come before them. If the creator of the World Wide Web comes before you, even if your the august body of the U.S. Congress, it’s best to be quiet and listen to this sage.
Nevertheless, I can’t help but wonder if they listened his sanguine glass-half-full approach to open standards the way I did. Forgive me for not being so glass-half-full myself regarding the Congress, but in matters regarding the WWW they’ve earned my skepticism, whereas Sir Berners-Lee has earned my optimism.
Read for yourself and see what you think. It’s a quick read, and worth the time.
