Speaking in Paris – 1996
I was one of the cofounders of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at MIT in 1994. I remember our first meeting with Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the Web, that December. Eighteen months later, the W3C held a global conference in Paris, France. I was honored to be the keynote speaker. If you have time to watch the video, you may find it interesting, or perhaps comical. It was a unique audience of technologists from around the world. Hard to believe, but twenty-four years ago, the Internet was a baby. There were many skeptics. I was one of the believers.
