Submission + - Thanking Peter Tattam (thanksfortrumpetwinsock.com)

Jacques Chester writes: "If you connected to the internet in the early 90s, you probably remember a little blue-and-gold trumpet icon. It was Trumpet Winsock, created by Peter Tattam, and it made it possible for millions to get online for the first time ever, kickstarting the web revolution.

Through Trumpet Winsock I found slashdot, linux and a whole world of interesting people and fascinating subjects.

Its creator, Peter Tattam, received almost no payments for the millions of copies distributed by ISPs and magazines.

In one of those weird sudden internet events, you can now pay Peter for his work, which made the interwebs accessible so long ago.

Thanks, Peter."
