TimBL's day job

When HTTP came along in the early 1990s, it wasn’t trying to solve an RPC problem so much as an information sharing problem, but it did implement request/response semantics.
Tim Berners-Lee's day job when he designed HTTP was implementing and supporting RPC for physics experiments. He'd known about RPC since at least 1980. It was no coincidence that he implemented request/response.
