I think someone is a bit older than me~!
Count on it bro! Count on it.
I remember in 1996 looking at the Internet and thinking what total crap it was. I'd been using Gopher and Archie before that, and the "Internet" as email, etc. But the graphical "revolution" and whatnot seemed pretty lame at the time. Yeah, it sucked then, but man... HTML5 has a LOT of promise.
Now my ideas are fundamentally different. I think in terms of openness and all that. I still don't like some of HTML5, but, functionally, it's great. I would much rather have open standards that aren't patent encumbered. But, we have what we have.
