Ted Talk Thursday ~ Belated Happy Birthday WWW!

As usual I’m a little behind the times.  Who knew that the World Wide Web’s birthday was celebrated March 11th?  I’m so disappointed I missed the day and didn’t get a chance to send birthday greetings.

The radio station from Panama that we listen to plays BBC News every hour.  On Wednesday evenings around 6:00 pm it plays a BBC News program called “Click” .  The program they played today was about the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web.  If you’d like to listen to it you can find it here it’s a little over a half hour-long but very interesting.  Even the poetry part, but don’t let that scare you.

Although many people had a hand in the creation of the web, an Englishman named Tim Berners-Lee is credited with being the inventor.  I found this little Ted Talk by Ian Ritchie about how he turned down a job working with Mr. Berners-Lee which he tells with humour.

The talk today is short so enjoy.  And listen to the podcast first, you won’t be sorry; it will only be available for a few weeks.

Read what others have to say about Mr. Berners-Lee’s invention!

      When she first started reading it I thought it was crap. But then the further she go into it the more I enjoyed listening to it and it made sense. I wonder if I can find it published somewhere on the WWW? LOL!

I'd love to hear from you!
