22. September 1999

Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, has been hailed by Time magazine as one of the 100 greatest minds of this century. His creation has already changed the way people do business, entertain themselves, exchange ideas, and socialize with one another. With new online businesses and communities forming every day, the full impact of Berners-Lee's grand scheme has yet to be fully known.

Berners-Lee's creation was fueled by a highly personal vision of the Web as a powerful force for social change and individual creativity. He has never profited personally from the Web but has devoted himself to its continued growth and health. Now, this low-profile genius tells his own story of the Web's origins-from its revolutionary introduction and the creation of the now ubiquitous WWW and HTTP acronyms to how he sees the future development of this revolutionary medium. Today, Berners-Lee continues to facilitate the Web's growth and development as director of the World Wide Web Consortium and from his position at the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science.

Berners-Lee offers insights to help readers understand the true nature of the Web, enabling them to use it to their fullest advantage. He shares his views on such critical issues as censorship, privacy, the increasing power of software companies in the online world, and the need to find the ideal balance between the commercial and social forces on the Web. His incisive criticism of the Web's current state makes clear that there is still much work to be done. Finally, Berners-Lee presents his own plan for the Web's future, one that calls for the active support and participation of programmers, computer manufacturers, and social organizations to make it happen.

His vision of the Web is something much more than a tool for research or communication; it is a new way of thinking and a means to greater freedom and social growth than ever before possible.

If you can read this review (and voice your opinion about his book on, you have Tim Berners-Lee to thank. When you've read his no-nonsense account of how he invented the World Wide Web, you'll want to thank him again, for the sheer coolness of his ideas. One day in 1980, Berners-Lee, an Oxford-trained computer consultant, got a random thought: "Suppose all the information stored on computers everywhere were linked?" So he created a system to give every "page" on a computer a standard address (now called a URL, or Universal Resource Locator), accessible via the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP), formatted with the HyperText Markup Language (HTML), and visible with the first browser, which did the trick of linking us all up.

He may be the most self-effacing genius of the computer age, and his egalitarian mind is evident in the names he rejected for his invention: "I thought of Mine of Information, or MOI, but moi in French means 'me,' and that was too egocentric.... The Information Mine (TIM) was even more egocentric!" Also, a mine is a passive repository; the Web is something that grows inexorably from everyone's contributions. Berners-Lee fully credits the colorful characters who helped him get the bobsled of progress going--one colleague times his haircuts to match the solstices--but he's stubbornly independent-minded. His quest is to make the Web "a place where the whim of a human being and the reasoning of a machine coexist in an ideal, powerful mixture."

Hard-core tech types may wish Berners-Lee had gone into deeper detail about the road ahead: the "boon and threat" of XML, free vs. commercial software, VRML 3-D imaging, and such. But he wants everyone in on the debate, so he wrote a brisk book that virtually anyone can understand. --Tim Appelo


The World Wide Web's explosion onto the global scene is one of the most dramatic arrivals of technology in history. Consequently, myths and misconceptions about the origins, impact and future of this technology have run wild. Now, for the first time, the world hears from the man who invented the WWW. English computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee quietly laid the groundwork for the WWW (and consequently Hypertext) in 1980, created a prototype in 1990, and unleashed it to the public in 1991. Now the Head of the Worldwide Web Consortium that oversees the WWW's growth, Berners-Lee provides in this book the inside truth about where the WWW came from and the remarkable discoveries that made it the platform to today's communications revolution. He also offers an important analysis of the future development of the WWW, and the likely impact on business and society. Berners-Lee was recently described in The Observer as the man 'who invented the future, who created something which one day will be bigger than all the other industries on earth'. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for those wanting to play in cyberspace 6. Dezember 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Weaving The Web is a wonderful blending of three distinct subjects: the history of the World Wide Web, an astute analysis of the web's "current" state, that is, where it stands in the middle of 1999, and where it's founder believes and thinks it is headed. It is difficult to believe the accuracy of Berners-Lee's vision of what the web could be in the time that the web was just a dream, and how he worked to achieve it. He also dispels the common belief that he either disdains the accumulation of wealth that could have been his had he chosen a different path, or that he envies those individuals who have made millions (or billions) by building on the web's humble beginnings. He also does not begrudge the commercialization over the web, as many academics did at the time when the web was viewed primarily as a medium for the free sharing of ideas and information.
Berners-Lee talks in depth about the social implications of technology, and indeed the World Wide Web is a social beast as much as it is a technological one. He does separate, however, the duties of bodies like the W3C whose sole purpose is to facilitate and strengthen the standards and protocols that are providing new richness and robustness to the web. This is clearly highlighted in his discussion of PICS, which allows for creation of rules that can facilitate filtering of objectionable material on the web. Berners-Lee makes the clear distinction between those who create the PICS technology, and those who decide how it will be implemented.
It is evident from this book that Berners-Lee is far from finished in his duties.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Way to go! 9. Mai 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Weaving the Web is a book written by the Web's creator "Tim Berners Lee". The book is divided in three main part. The evolution of the Web, the moral behind the Web, and the future of the Web. The special thing about the book is that you can read it as a technical book, and you can read it as a moral book. After reading some pages in the book, i had chosen to read it morally.
The book has only 209 pages, but you learn very much about the Web by reading it. I think it should be morally obliged for every web creator, and everyone that concerns the Web, to read the book. In the book he speaks about how the Web evolved, what its potential is, and what his personal vision about the Web is. It's a amusing book to read in that way. The moral behind the Web.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unputdownable, but where's the hypertext version? 7. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
After browsing umpteen "History of the web" pages, its refreshing to get it from the man himself.
Primarily, this book is a personal statement, and should be evaluated as one.It has the flavour of a travelogue with the descriptions of the bylanes and their interesting denizens who put in their mite to make this journey happen.However, it doesnt seem to be written with the intention to "attract"; its more of a "how and why i did this" type.As such, it falls outside the "Inventing the Web for dummies" class, which probably explains the lack of pictures, cute icons and sidebars (There is however, a graph on the cover which i'd love to look at fully!).Throughout the book runs a chain(web?) of incidents and decisions that are easily construed as examples of modesty, altrusim and general magnanimity on TBL's part (eg, not wanting to name the web as TIM,happiness at the web protocols being made public, tolerance of big companys' ideas of total control,etc) but (which I suspect) are only a result of common sense reasoning to get the whole thing going the way he wanted it to. I suppose the only way you could "own" the web was to give it away! Also refreshing is the lack of derison for the commercial side of the web.
For a book with such an inward perspective, however, it holds a lot for every reader.The everyday web buff now knows how it happened - blow by blow.The corporate reader now has something to glean a success story from and a starting point to tommorow's web technologies - which is enough justification for promoting this book as something more than just desktop decoration and board meeting small talk.
The programmer (IMHO) is the person to benefit the most , however.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A mixed bag 1. Oktober 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, Berners-Lee has written a book that not only describes the invention and evolution of the Web, but also inspires commitment to high principles and deep introspection. Berners-Lee is clearly an intellect of the highest caliber, and his commitment to democratic principles in developing the Web is, to me, profoundly admirable. On the other hand, the author seems to labor under the common curse of most software engineers - an inability to clearly communicate ideas and concepts to the non-specialist. Though he tries in words to communicate these concepts, I believe that, overall, his attempt fails unless the reader first has some exposure to, and familiarity with the world-wide Web - an unacceptable pre-requisite for a book directed at the non-specialist.
The really unfortunate thing about this is that it does not need to be so. For example, the book has no figures and no tables (though it does have a glossary of the hundreds of acronyms used and a good index). A few well-designed figures and summary tables would help a great deal to unify concepts that are just plain fuzzy and awkward when described with words alone. If you've ever seen a Web site and hypertext you can pretty well follow along with the written descriptions, but how much more helpful it would have been to have a few (color) pictures illustrating what a well-constructed Web site with hyper text looks like.
The book does have its fine points. It is a first-hand look at how the Web came into existence, and how it is continuing to evolve today. It also explains efforts to make the Web more valuable.
