Wonderful Writeable Web

Bob Wyman on Tim Berners-Lee's ('TBL' - father of the Wonderful, Writeable Web) first blog post:

"The idea of a read/write web had been motivating the work of many hypertext developers like TBL long before the web was born. But, the last 10 years experience with the largely "read-only" web has caused many people to forget that the original idea was to create a writeable, creative space -- not just a network of things to be read. Fortunately, the growth of blogging is finally causing the renaissance of the read/write web. What we don't understand, I think, is how the original idea of the read/write web could have been "lost" -- even temporarily."
