Watched the rerun of CNN’s special: Top 25 Innovations. Haven’t seen it written about (much) in blogs – post airing – so, here is a little recap.
Dale Wolf’s post on RFID winds up being quite relevant. RFID was #10.
The complete list is available here.
#1 is what we are using right now. ARPANET gave way to the #1 innovation. TCP/IP was the ‘enabler’ for #1. Tim Berners Lee was the creator of the way to publish. Mosaic allowed you to read the published work. A browser. Now, the work is underway to create the GWW – “Galactic Wide Web“.
Yes, #1 is the Internet.
