Family information[edit]

Need to add this: http://webfoundation.org/tim-berners-lee-married-rosemary-leith/


Is there any reason why there's no information about his family? Nancy Carlson is mentioned as his wife in a number of sources:

1989 Invention document redistributed in 1990, unchanged.[edit]

The text of this article stated that Tim Berners-Lee revised his original proposal in 1990. Mr Berners-Lee states that he simply redistributed the March 1989 proposal in May 1990, unchanged:

A hand conversion to HTML of the original MacWord (or Word for Mac?) document written in March 1989 and later redistributed unchanged apart from the date added in May 1990. Provided for historical interest only. The diagrams are a bit dotty, but available in versioins linked below. The text has not been changed, even to correct errors such as misnumbered figures or unfinished references. - http://www.w3.org/History/1989/proposal.html

tmbl[edit]

FYI W3C's CSS Expressive Generalizations and Gadgetry draft published today proposes <speech-rate> as an extension to the existing spec for <voice-rate>. Their suggested unit is the 'Timble' (abbreviated as tmbl) being "the rate of speech of Sir Tim Berners-Lee when delivering a speech... 1tmbl is generally considered to be about the maximum rate a listener without special training can sustainably understand while paying close attention. Consider reducing the speed when the audience is distracted, tired, or comprises many non-native speakers. These factors are cumulative. For dictation or during meetings for which live minutes are taken, a rate of 0.3tmbl is more appropriate." - Pointillist (talk) 17:57, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
