Maybe it is because Net and Web have been used. For perfectly good things .. but different things. -- Tim Berners-Lee (TwitterID: @timberners_lee).

  • Maybe it is because Net and Web have been used. For perfectly good things .. but different things. -- Tim Berners-Lee (TwitterID: @timberners_lee).
  • The Net we normally use as short for Internet, which is the International Information Infrastructure. Al Gore promoted the National Information Infrastructure (NII) presumably as a political pragma at the time, but clearly it became International. So let's call it III. Let's think about the Net now as an invention which made life simpler and more powerful. It made it simpler because of having to navigate phone lines from one computer to the next,you could write programs as though the net were just one big cloud, where messages went in at your computer and came out at the destination one. The realization was, "It isn't the cables, it is the computers which are interesting". The Net was designed to allow the computers to be seen without having to see the cables. Simpler, more powerful. Obvious, really. -- Tim Berners-Lee (TwitterID: @timberners_lee).
  • So The Graph word has been creeping in. BradFitz talks of the Social Graph as does Alex Iskold, who discusses social graphs and network theory in general, points out that users want to own their own social graphs. He alo points out that examples of graphs are the Internet and the Web. So what's with the Graph word? -- Tim Berners-Lee (TwitterID: @timberners_lee).
