Internet & Networking Exactly twenty years ago, a document was published that played a huge role in establishing the web as we know it today. Twenty years later, and this simple and straightforward document is proof of an irrefutable fact: while closed technologies can change markets, open technologies can change the world.

The web isn't the internet, the internet made the web possible, and there likely would have been alternatives to the web had it not been developed.

Hyperlinking had been around in a couple of different forms.

We already had ftp, gopher, nntp, and more.

I don't think the web is anywhere nearly as important as the Internet. ;)
