Check out these nuggets:

The man who is often credited with developing the HTTP system - the transport system on which the internet is based ..


Hypertext Transfer Protocol - HTTP for short - is the system for transmitting web messages but there was no agreement on the right set of protocols to work it.


Whoever wrote that story says several times that Fielding invented and authored HTTP, even though Fielding himself denies it says it was a group effort.

Sigh. Fielding deserved better than that.

From a bio published by Sun
"He is the primary architect of the current Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1), co-author of the Internet standards for HTTP and Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI), and a founder of several open-source software projects, including the Apache HTTP Server Project"

maybe some in this group effort deserve more credit than others

Oh, Fielding's done a lot of the heavy lifting for HTTP:

R. Fielding UC Irvine
J. Gettys Compaq/W3C
J. Mogul Compaq
H. Frystyk W3C/MIT
L. Masinter Xerox
P. Leach Microsoft
T. Berners-Lee W3C/MIT
June 1999


But it was, like he says, Tim B-L who started it all. If the writer had checked on the details, the story would've been much more interesting I think.
