Nice thread

But I have to ask the uncomfortable (and obvious) question.....

If none of this was inventive....  If it has all been done a hundred times before .....

Then why did the W3.org spend tens of millions and 11 years (since they got the completely obvious work from the plagiarizers at Netscape in 1997... who got from the plagiarizer Guha at Apple)  do it all again???????

Someone is ripping someone off.

Either none of this is inventive and the W3 is pulling its own form of sub prime mortgage .. or the work was inventive, in which case, someone else owns it.

Give credit where ti is due and tremble to take  it where it is not.
