Synopsis:

Named one of the greatest minds of the 20th century by Time, Tim Berners-Lee is responsible for one of that century's most important advancements: the world wide web.  Now, this low-profile genius-who never personally profitted from his invention -offers a compelling protrait of his invention.  He reveals the Web's origins and the creation of the now ubiquitous http and www acronyms and shares his views on such critical issues as censorship, privacy, the increasing power of softeware companies , and the need to find the ideal balance between commercial and social forces.  He offers insights into the true nature of the Web, showing readers how to use it to its fullest advantage.  And he presents his own plan for the Web's future, calling for the active support and participation of programmers, computer manufacturers, and social organizations to manage and maintain this valuable resource so that it can remain a powerful force for social change and an outlet for individual creativity.


Review:

"Anyone doubting just how much a work in progress the Internet remains should grab a copy of this book....In WEAVING THE WEB, Mr. Berners-Lee, using analogies and layman's terms, chronicles the development of his brainchild and then describes its 'ultimate destiny.' If his style of writing is unremarkable, the subject matter more than compensates.....[This book] is an insightful history of one of the century's most important inventions."

Jason L. Riley, Wall Street Journal, 10/01/1999

Review:

"In a world less obsessed with money, Tim Berners-Lee would be more celebrated than all the dot-com billionaires put together....Any reader of WEAVING THE WEB will feel a little better knowing that Berners-Lee is keeping watch."

David Streitfeld, San Francisco Chronicle, 10/10/1999
