    • 2. When the Web Began
      • When Tim Berners-Lee invented the web, he envisioned a read/write Web. But what had emerged in the 1990s was an essentially read-only Web on which you needed an account with an ISP (Internet service provider) to host your web site, special tools, and/or HTML expertise to create a decent site. 1
