Benjamin Franklin

Information systems start small and grow. They also start isolated and then merge. A new system must allow existing systems to be linked together without requiring any central control or coordination.

Tim Berners-Lee, in the original proposal of the world wide web from 1989

"First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win".
