15th Birthday of the WWW

Tim BLAugust 6th went by without any much fanfare.  It was actually a lazy Sunday for most of us but 15 years ago, Tim Berners-Lee posted links to the codes of the "www" to the alt.hypertext newsgroup.  The idea of the posting is to insulate the users of a network from the underlying technology behind their system but instead deal directly with data.  Derivatives of that original code still lives on today as we enter "http://" on our browsers.

Here's to 15,000,000,000 more years to the web!
