Man… time really flies

After all, it was 15 years ago yesterday that Tim Berners-Lee posted this to usenet:

The WWW project merges the techniques of information retrieval and hypertext to
make an easy but powerful global information system.

The project started with the philosophy that much academic information should
be freely available to anyone. It aims to allow information sharing within
internationally dispersed teams, and the dissemination of information by
support groups.
