What it was all along
“ The primary design principle underlying the Web’s
usefulness and growth is universality. When you make a
link, you can link to anything. [...] The Web should be
usable by people with disabilities. It must work with any
form of information, be it a document or a point of data,
and information of any quality — from a silly tweet to a
scholarly paper. And it should be accessible from any kind
of hardware that can connect to the Internet: stationary or
mobile, small screen or large. ”
