#100 Early Web Innovations
What were the key technical achievements and insights that made the Web successful?
When it was released, the World Wide Web revolutionized communications and commerce. It was created by Tim Berners-Lee, who outlined its key technical achievements, philosophy, and insights in his 2000 book Weaving the Web. In this episode, we go over three of the key innovations explained in the book: networked hypertext, the URI, and decentralization. We also discuss one innovation that did not quite make it—a browser that was also an editor.
For this episode, we assume listeners already heard our earlier episode on how the Web works.
