KathyStinson.com — 20 Years Already?

The World Wide Web was invented by an English scientist, Tim Berners-Lee, in 1989. Through the 1990s, it became increasingly useful and popular. Thanks to my tech-savvy sister, Janet Barclay, www.kathystinson.com came into being in 1999.

Janet wrote about last year’s total makeover of my site (after many updates along the way) on her own site: Janet Barclay: Web Design with a Personal Touch. It’s pretty neat, how its current design came to be.

    No question. You yourself make the world a much better place, and also your books and your website add immeasurably to the delightful part of the world. As for the WWW – it’s like much else in life. Pluses and minuses.
