„I never view aesthetic ideas as having an existence purely of their own but as a function they have in connection with political or moral values.“

„Despite the buy don't build credo I came to the conclusion that I was going to have to create the web on my own.“

— Tim Berners-Lee British computer scientist, inventor of the World Wide Web 1955
Context: At CERN there was a credo meant to avoid unnecessary labors, it said that when acquiring new technology: Buy, Don't Build. There were several commercial hypertext editors and I thought we could just add some internet code, so that the hypertext documents could then be sent over the internet. I thought the companies engaged in the then fringe field of hypertext would immediately grasp the possibilities of the web. Unfortunately, their reaction was quite the opposite... it seemed that explaining the vision of the web was exceedingly difficult without a web browser in hand, people had to be able to grasp the web in full, which meant imagining a whole world populated with websites and browsers. It was a lot to ask. Despite the buy don't build credo I came to the conclusion that I was going to have to create the web on my own.
