Guardian called Tim Berners Lee the "founder of the internet". 🤦♂️
1. The internet isn't an establishment to be founded. One doesn't found the electricity grid for example.
2. Tim Berners Lee invented the World Wide Web, not the internet. Lookup Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn who invented TCP/IP. Though that's more important, it doesn't qualify as inventing the entire internet either.
@js290 Al Gore invented global warming and is causing all the hurricanes. 😂
@njoseph when the ISPs stop letting thru any TCP ports other than 443 and 80, i.e. block everything other than HTTP[S], the Web will BE the internet. It's already the case that all the shitty apps communicate over HTTPS, and then we have DNS over HTTPS...
I wish we could somehow reverse this trend, turning HTTP back to only one of many protocols. But I have no idea how...
