> In the meantime, Tim Berners-Lee receives the Turing award.

What's that side note supposed to mean?

The people who created the Internet vs the people who created the Web is a recurring theme in Alan Kay's presentations.

Of course you can read a lot more into it, just look at the current state of affairs.

ah, I always found that supposed difference not very convincing.

Both Kay and Berners-Lee deserve their Turing awards. Both have had good and influential ideas. Ideasthat have taken a life of their own and didn't quite turn into what they imagined, at least not in the mainstream.
