Looking back on 15 years or so of development of the Web is there anything you would do differently given the chance?

I would have skipped on the double slash – there's no need for it. Also I would have put the domain name in the reverse order – in order of size so, for example, the BCS address would read: http:/ The last two terms of this example could both be servers if necessary.

What subsequent Web developments by others have impressed you most?

The Google algorithm was a significant development. I don't want to name too many, but in general I like the fact that I've had thank you emails from people whose lives have been saved by information on a medical website or who have found the love of their life on a dating website, which is great. The important thing is the diversity available

Possibly, Yahoo and MSN are equally as likely to accomplish this as Google is.

Have a gut feeling about MSN's potential.
