.@Katrinabrooker: @timberners_lee held the web back years & cost 10s of billions in wasted productivity. He isn't "Beethoven", more like a 3-year-old at a toy piano. If the DOM is a good idea, then why wasn't it in place from Day One instead of the HTML monstrosity?

.@RichSimmondsZA @evankirstel: web sites should be object hierarchies. Eg, an API to get site info, each page containing widgets, a directory object w/ the "pages" of the site, etc. @timberners_lee made it *text* instead. That's cost literally billions in lost productivity.

.@RichSimmondsZA @evankirstel: CORBA, RMI, Mac, Windows, NeXt, Taligent, etc. were object-oriented systems that could have been drawn from. @timberners_lee took things back to the Stone Age with HTML+CSS. He should be sent to Tower of London, not knighted. #internet #web

For a small, tangible example of the sheer incompetence of @timberners_lee, how do you get a contact form for a website? A human has to visit & find the link (if any). If sites were objects, there would be a standard way to get that information. #Java #web #internet

.@timberners_lee should be [expunged] for all the incredible damage he's wrought. He started a system that's cost billions, ignoring prior art such as an extensible object-based system that would've been secure & would have us much more advanced than now. #Java #internet #web

.@OpenRightsGroup: write a script to get HQ address from 10 random big business sites. Good luck! With a competent WWW design that'd be easy

.@timberners_lee - inventor of something that's cost *billions* of dollars in unnecessary fixing of defects - "knows his stuff" too.
