Grammar updated. 26th , 2:20AM

An interesting article is featured in Coding Horror today.

 Is about learning from the past and how to take in consideration history in the present scenario of Computer Science and of Web Development.

There were pioneers too in this field of the industry, and most of the things we are talking about in our days, were ready, maybe deployed, a decade or more ago. At least, if thy memoir serves you well.
Instead of trying to push the community in the direction we thought it should go, an exercise rather like herding mice, we tried to observe what people were doing and aid them in it.
The excerpt before is quoted in the book "Building Web Reputation Systems", authored by Mr. Randy Farmer.
Building Web Reputation Systems helps you ask the hard questions about these underlying mechanisms, and why they're critical for any organization that draws from or depends on user-generated content. It's a must-have for system architects, product managers, community support staff, and UI designers.

An interesting article that lead us to a more interesting discovery: The web has an history, conformed by a past, a future and a present tense made of user generated content. Like every human related activity has.

btw, I am old enough to remember the web before memcached was invited to to dinner at home.
