1989: Why WAIS will Change the World ?

Wide Area Information Servers Concepts was a paper that was widely distributed that painted some of the vision for the project.
 It had many of the features that came prominent in the World Wide Web (document identifiers), Altavista/Google (Internet based search engines), Siri (searching multiple servers at once in different ways), client-server systems, payment systems, Reddit (distributed editors to play a role in prioritizing documents), integrated personal/corporate/wide area searching (does not really exist yet).
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: First World Wide Web server started the same year. 1989.
