From "yvesbolo"...


Here is the video of the presentations given last week at the celebration of the 20 years of the Web we co-organized with the CERN.

A passionate discussion about the past and the future of the web, with Tim Berners-Lee, Ben Segal (Tim's mentor and an open book on the history of our favorite invention), Robert Cailliau (who was the web's second user, at a time the whole network could be held on a floppy disk) and Jean-François Groff (who coded the first WWW libraries).

Later in the day, Chris Bizer (who launched the DBPedia project), Stephane Boyera (who heads the mobile efforts of the W3C), Dan Brickley (who was at the conference happening on the floor above Lift09 and didn't show up Very Happy) and Tom Scott (who works at the BBC, trying to connect all the content created at the legendary English TV) take the stage to talk about the future, open data, semantic web, and much more.

There was a conference at my alma mater a few years ago called WWW@10. No, I don't recall why they picked 1994 as the beginning of the Web (maybe Mosaic?).

In any case, they also had a NeXT running a projector too but used my loaned Extron interface (a commercially released video adapter for many workstations, including a cable for the NeXT) so they didn't have to build this: http://www.abcm.ch/files/photo/CERN-NextCube-Adapteur_C_001.jpg

I couldn't attend, unfortunately, but I did take a few photos of a NeXT running on a 20' screen. I need to find those and post them. There are some videos on the conference's web site too, and I'm sure one of them has some video of the NeXT running...
