Making computers human literate WWW@20

Last Friday saw the 20th anniversary of the Web — well if not the web as such then TimBL’s proposal for an information management system. To celebrate the occasision CERN hosted a celebration which I was honoured to be invited to speak at, by the big man no less! I’ll write up some more about the event itself, but in the meantime here are my slides.

I’ve also posted some photos of the event up on Flickr.

Permanent web IDs or making good web 2.0 citizens

These are the slides for a presentation I gave a little while ago in Broadcasting House at a gathering of radio types – both BBC and commercial radio – as part of James Cridland’s mission to “agree on technology, compete on content“.

The presentation is based on the thinking outlined in my previous post: web design 2.0 it’s all about the resource and its URL.
