PHP is actually a recursive initialism. Not a recursive acronym.

The difference is that an acronym is reserved for initials that are pronounced as a word and not by their individual letters. The latter refers to an initialism.

Some may say that history of a programming or scripting language is not important, but i think it is very crucial if you want to understand the architectural development and reasons behind it. So presentation can be important too, i think this is a more clear version of this document: http://line.do/history-of-php/r5q4x1

As the nationality of Zeev and Andi was mentioned, I was curious as to where Rasmus hailed from.

Wikipedia says he was born in Greenland and moved to Canada in 1980.
