WWW Memories

Spurred on by Mary Mary, I dusted off the cobwebs of my mind and posted a comment on her blog about my favorite WWW memory. I share it with you here:

In 1994, after I learned about the WWW, I gave several lectures in the Phoenix area to introduce the web to a wide variety of groups, including the Harvard Business School Alumni Association, the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce and the Arizona Software Association. I would connect to the Internet via a dialup connection and and give the audience their first glimpse of the possibilities of the web. For one example, I would visit a site hosted in Jerusalem which showed a photo of the Dome of the Rock mosque to illustrate how the historic spot of ground on which that mosque was located, held sacred by Judaism, Islam and Christianity, could be explored from afar by the magic of the Internet. Now, 12 years later, the reach of the web has expanded exponentially, and the political and religious tension around that little spot of ground in Jersusalem is literally broiling – all reported, of course, on cnn.com.
