The Future of the Web
Recorded: 14 March 2006
The development of Web technology has been an exciting ride, a series of socially motivated technical innovations; some languishing, others catching on in a viral way. As each development has suggested many new ones, and much of the original vision is still unfulfilled, there is a lot to do.
In his talk, Tim Berners-Lee discusses new challenges and hopes for weblike systems on the net.
