Internet & Networking Exactly twenty years ago, a document was published that played a huge role in establishing the web as we know it today.

Well...BitTorrent actually accounts for more traffic, from at least one report I read. Could have been off, but when you consider a web page might be a couple of megs at worst versus a several gigs torrent download of your favorite free OS ...

You really think "your favorite free OS" represents a significant part of traffic on bittorent? Better check out http://btdigg.org/top100.html (which monitors DHT network); free OS don't even seem to register in top100.
