Currently we’re looking at using a mysql backend with third party api’s over a ruby on rails framework and an ajax-ified front-end… Does that make any sense to anyone? I’m barely grasping it all too.
Here’s a news report on the early stages of the internet. Developers described it as something they just wanted to create, even though there was probably no money in it.
