the web was a mistake.
@sophia but it was the best mistake of all!
@sophia In September 1995, the US government allowed commercial firms to manage & monetize the Internet.
1 October 1995, I got my first job as an Internet engineer.
I'd like to say: I'm sorry. I'm really, really sorry.
@mwlucas we'll all forgive you in time.
@sophia Much the same way we'll forgive Charlemagne... eventually.
@mwlucas oh he's definitely getting forgiven before you
@sophia But what about cat? Cat not good?
@sophia Inventing electricity was the first one.
@sophia yup. The whole reason I got into technology in the mid-00s was because I wanted to create little apps and games for personal computers.
By the time I finished training, the world wanted "web 2.0", online APIs only certain people are allowed to use, mobile apps you have to pay to learn & develop for and B2B middleware systems that shunt huge volumes of data and messages around.
