Berners-Lee on Steve Jobs

Berners-Lee says Jobs made computing 'usable rather than infuriating':

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the world wide web, has praised Steve Jobs for helping devise the machine that he used to write the software.

Berners-Lee wrote the code for the web while working at the physics research institute Cern in 1991, using a NeXT Computer - the company set up by Jobs after he was ejected from Apple in 1985.

In a post on his personal blog entitled "Steve Jobs and the actually usable computer", Berners-Lee - whom nobody would be likely to call naive or inexperienced with computers - says that "A big thing Steve Jobs did for the world was to insist that computers could be usable rather than totally infuriating".
