Tim Berners Lee on the Read/Write Web

[via Scripting News and Ed Cone]

Tim Berners Lee, the inventor of the web, comments on recent read/write developements such as blogs and wikis in an interview by the BBC. Very exciting to hear TBLs thoughts on how folks are getting back to his original vision:

"The idea was that anybody who used the web would have a space where they could write and so the first browser was an editor, it was a writer as well as a reader. Every person who used the web had the ability to write something. It was very easy to make a new web page and comment on what somebody else had written, which is very much what blogging is about."

"When you write a blog, you don't write complicated hypertext, you just write text, so I'm very, very happy to see that now it's gone in the direction of becoming more of a creative medium."
