    In 1996 Jim Fulton (the current CTO of Zope Corporation, the
    distributors of Zope) was drafted to teach a class on CGI
    programming, despite not knowing very much about the subject.  CGI
    or *common gateway interface* programming is a commonly-used web
    development model that allows developers to construct dynamic
    websites.  Jim studied all of the existing documentation on CGI on
    his way to the class.  On the way back from the class, Jim
    considered what he didn't like about traditional CGI based
    programming environments.  From these initial musings, the core of
    Zope was written on the plane flight back from the class.
