What a great and accidental thought from Sir Tim Berners-Lee. Little did he know how important that decision would be so many years later. Thank you Sir Tim Berners-Lee for your beautiful luck.
The only time I ever emailed Tim Berners-Lee was to ask him why he called it “index.html” versus “home.html” “default.*” or any other alternate file name. He was kind enough to answer, saying in so many words that it just seemed to make sense, and that he didn’t put too much thought into it.
A fine coincidence, but no artist should feel constrained by the maladies of a few. If every website had blue links, I’d be “blue” indeed.
“the maladies of a few”??? Considering about 10,000,000 men in the US (7% of the population) are colour blind, I find it shortsighted to dismiss that as “a few”. Geesh!
Interesting! I didn’t know that was pure coincidence.
Huh. I guess semantics and details like that mostly come into play when something manifests itself.
Got something to say?
We have turned off comments, but you can see what folks had to say before we did so.
