As for this day – 12 November – Tim Berners Lee published a formal proposal for the world wide web in 1990 (what would we do without it!) and the Shanghai Maglev Train set a record speed of 501km/h in 2003. However, it’s also the day that massacres took place in Dili (1991) and in the Vietnam village of My Lai (1969).
Speaking of massacres, Charles Manson was born on 12 November 1934, sharing a birthday with Karl Marx (1897), Princess Grace (1929), Neil Young (1945) and 1976 Olympics golden girl, Nadia Comaneci (1961).
