Tim Berners-Lee

Created web in late 1980s and early 1990s at Cern

Offered it free on the net...

"When it's 30, (the internet)

I expect it to be much more stable, something that people don't talk about.

Really when you talk about an article, you don't say, "Oh, I'm going to write an article on paper!" The fact that we use pen and paper is sort of rather understood.

Similarly the web will be, hopefully, will be something which is sunk into the background as an assumption. Now, if

as technologists develop, we've done our job well, the web will be this universal medium,

which will be very, very flexible. It won't, itself, have any preconceived notions about what's built on top.

One of the

reasons that I want to keep it open like that, is partly because I want humanity to have it as a clean slate.

My goal for the web in 30 years is to be the platform which has led to the building of something very new and special, which we can't imagine now...." ... to this article ...

Paul Grahm (USA)

, "... on building companies for fast growth" Paul Graham is a programmer, writer, and investor. In 1995, he and Robert Morris started Viaweb, the first software as a service company. Viaweb was acquired by Yahoo in 1998, where it became Yahoo Store. In 2001 he started publishing essays on, which in 2011 got 17 million page views. In 2005 he ..." Also from Paul: "In a sense there's just one mistake that kills startups: not making something users want. If you make something users want, you'll probably be fine, ...

Image from:


"... whatever else you do or don't do. And if you don't make something users want, then you're dead, whatever else you do or don't do. So really this is a list of 18 things that cause startups not to make something users want. Nearly all failure funnels through that."

Some are born with a commitment to social change in their blood. Others are compelled by life-changing events. Still others find their calling through a patchwork of experiences, studies and observations; an 'aggregational' calling, as long-time partner Marcia Levine puts it.

The latter is how Levine describes her road from Steel City to highly regarded community leader. Image and statement from,

Jon Postel (USA)

Jon Postel's technical influence can be seen at the very heart of many of the protocols which make the Internet work:a TCP/IP determines the way data is moved through a network; SMTP allows us to send emails; and DNS, the Domain Name Service, helps people make sense of the Internet. He contributed to these and many other technologies. He studied at UCLA, ultimately gaining his Ph.D. in computer science in 1974. Those studies led to his early involvement in the ARPANET project, the packet switching network from which the modern Internet evolved.
In addition, he was involved with Request For Comment (RFC) document series, which contains the standards and practices of the Internet's infrastructure. For almost three decades, Jon Postel was RFC Editor, shepherding drafts through the open consensus processes that characterize Internet development efforts.
For many, Jon's greatest contribution to the Internet was his role in creating the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).

This task - which he volunteered to take on and which he at first performed manually - provided the stability the Internet's numbering and protocol management systems needed for it to grow and scale. He was also involved with the Los Nettos network (a regional network for the greater Los Angeles area) and was one of Internet Society's founders, the first individual member; and he served as a Trustee from 1996-98. He died October 16, 1998 at the age of 55. - See more at:

A little bit more about Jon....

[On Jon Postel: "One January day in 1998, Jon Postel emailed eight of the 12 organizations that handled the address books for the entire internet. He told them to reconfigure their computer servers so that they pulled addresses not from a government-backed operation in Herndon, Virginia, but from a machine at the computing facility he helped run at the University of Southern California. And they did."]...

"Whatever Postel's intentions, the incident shows what a key figure he was in the rise of the internet. In 1969, he was part of the team at the University of California, Los Angeles that set up the first node on the ARPAnet, the research network ... "

(From Nancy Koncilja Gurish- 'Thank you Jon! R.I.P.')

According to news reports at the time, Postel made the switch without approval from anyone. Some said it was merely a "test" meant to show that the internet's directory infrastructure could be repositioned as needed. But others said

that Postel was making a statement - that he was

trying to show the White House that it couldn't wrest control of the internet from the widespread community of researchers

who had built and maintained the network over the previous three decades. The White House was just days away from revealing a plan to reorganize Tim Berners-Lee and many others, we all contributed - big steps or little - to the amazing tool it is today.

I have a number of academic credentials if that's interesting to you, including a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from the University of California, San Diego, a Master's in Education from Purdue University,

On the business side, I have created and launched four Internet related startups, the first of which was The Internet Mall. The original one. Long since vanished into obscurity, of course, but I was definitely part of the dot-com bubble and in..."

Q: What drove you to quit sugar?

Jason Wu

(moved to Vancouver (British Columbia) when he was 9 ... " Although only 28,

the precocious designer

has already achieved many of his aspirations. He has emerged as one of the leading global talents based in NYC but continues to evolve and grow as a designer. Jason continues to receive accolades including being named one of the finalists in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in July 2008. In June 2010 he won the Swarovski Award for Womenswear at the CFDA Fashion Awards and in April 2011 he was nominated for the CFDA/Swarovski Award for Accessory Design. Of course, my dress being chosen for the first inaugural was a huge boost to my career, but you have to remember ... "

" ... I already had a business for three years, had fashion industry support and was sold at all the major retailer, including Saks Fifth Avenue. What it did for me was to increase my presence worldwide, helped propel the brand to the next level. From first inaugural to now, there has been a lot of growth. I started when I was 23, now I’m 30. Shoes and bags have become a very important part of my business; I’m doing a make up collection with Lancome. For a young business, it is important to be more accessible to bigger audience. My clothing prices could be prohibitive. Accessories increases reach. If you can’t afford clothes, you can still buy into my vision.

"Third, think of the Lord. Meditate on Him and His goodness. Isaiah 26:3 states, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." To stay our minds on God means to have Him in our thoughts; to think of His goodness and greatness. Consider what He is doing around you and be thankful for His goodness. This gives us perfect peace.
