    Default 40 People who changed the internet


    Hongkiat has compiled a list of 40 people who've changed the way we play and share information on the internet together.
    Due to the size of the article(And let's admit it, Wordpress kicks VB's ¤¤¤ from a mile away when text formatting), you can view it here http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/40-peop...-the-internet/

    I find it rather sad that Linus Torvalds, the man who invented the kernel half the servers on the 'internet' rely on was not included in the list. But nonetheless, it's an amusing and educational read.
    Enjoy

    Because half the servers on the Internet does not rely on linux. It's less than 25%

    Show me a forum software that has better formatting than vB. and html is not even enabled due to security issue.


    Poole is the man! 4chan XD

    I have no problem with Vb, but eh, wordpress is the way to go if you want your articles to look 'nice'.
    and here's an alternative you may be interested in, http://xenforo.com/community/
    It's apparently so decent that Internet Brands(The company that owns vb) felt threatened by its existance and filed a lawsuit against it </lol>
    And 25% of the internet is still quite an hefty number

    On a side note, Go Assange and Pool. Manlier than the manliest men \o/

    The alpha version of vB isn't lacking anything on that respect

    XF has still ways to go. There is a ~2500 post thread about the lawsuit in vb forum in the customer area.
    Until a verdict is reached, none can tell if IB felt "threatened" or if they really have a case.

    Mr. Lee is also great. He is still working actively in w3c.

    btw, caterina fake is the only woman (shared with his husban) in there. NO WONDER there are no women in the Internet.
