A short history of tap (spectator.co.uk)

I was wholeheartedly expecting an article on the history of the Test Anything Protocol (TAP[1]).

Mildly interesting all the same.

If you are looking for a history of the protocol, it's also mildly interesting.[2]

The difference between a viewer and an aficionado: I only called it "tap dance", and didn't realize that the real purveyors called it just "tap".
