Berners-Lee starts a Blog

By Derek Sooman on December 26, 2005, 7:05 PM
One of the most truly interesting guys out there in computing right now, Tim Berners-Lee (one of the fathers of the World Wide Web) has started his own Blog. Tim, working at CERN, the Geneva-based European Organization for Nuclear Research, was responsible for creating the WWW 15 years ago. Now, he is starting his own Blog.

Berners-Lee is chatting with the rest of us about what he thinks--with a Blog. His first 286-word submission, entitled "So I have a Blog," has received some 500 comments from well-wishers offering praise, gratitude and the odd protest including "But I thought Al Gore invented the Internet..."
Berners-Lee claims that the Blog is nothing really more than his desire to play with blogging tools. But itís likely to be a great source of interest to WWW technologists and computer geeks alike. Interestingly enough, this Xmas day it was the 25th anniversary of the day that Tim made the first browser available at CERN.

Amazing. A God is starting a blog... I can't help but be intrigued. However, it's awkward how a technological genius like Berners-Lee who created the WWW is spending his time working in a European based Nuclear Research Organization. But thanks to him, the world has been revolutionized for the better.

The link to his blog directs to, and I didn't find there any link, so I couldn't see his blog.Anyway, I'm sure this blog will attract many interested people who would like to learn about this great invention. Actucally, I'm one of those people. I don't know the exact way of building the first browser and using the network that was available back then. I would defineitly like to learn more about this protocol, so if anyone has some useful links on the subject, it'll be great :) And sure Al Gore invented the Internet ! Didn't you know that ?
