How I Discovered the World Wide Web in December 1993
A Brief Web Story -- Let's Go Back to December 1993...
- When I was still at Digital in December 1993, a friend named Dan Kalikow at Digital
introduced me to this new facet of the Internet called the World Wide Web. He showed me
some people's Home Pages at Digital and noted that the HTML language used to assemble
these home pages was a superset of the VAX Document tag markup language which many of us
used at Digital. Though I had been using the Internet for four years, I was never the same
after that: The Web made an indelible impression on me. From that day forward, I really
wanted a Home Page of my own. On May 7, 1996, I finally got it together and decided to
publish a Home Page and several related pages. What you see here and in these related
pages is the result of nearly 2.5 years of pent up frustration about desiring to get
published on the Web. I hope you enjoy some of the things you find here.
