Joe MacMillan: Let's get started. Berners-Lee wrote HTML to view and edit the Web, HTTP so that it could talk to itself. The chatter could be cacophonous. It could be deafeningly silent. Big picture what will the World Wide Web become? Short answer who knows?
Donna Emerson: Okay, so, what's your point?
Joe MacMillan: It's a waste of time to try to figure out what the Web will become. We just don't know. Because right now, at the end of the day, it's just an online research catalogue running on NeXT computers on a small network in Europe.
Cameron Rendon: So, you're saying everything we've talked about since we got here has been a waste of time?
Joe MacMillan: I'm saying, let's take a step back. Literally, a step back.
Gordon Clark: Yeah, but what is this on the board?
Joe MacMillan: It's the code for the Web browser.
