Session 11

Episode 3(3) - Birth & explosion of the World Wide Web

Thursday, July 2, 2015 - 5:30 PM

Seminar Room B309, Engineering Block B

This week we are returning to the University of Melbourne campus for the remaining presentations in this series. Hopefully this will be an easier venue for people to reach. As usual we will continue meeting on the first and third Thursdays of the month until the program is finished.

For those unfamiliar with the Engineering complex, the map here shows how to find the venue from either the Swanston Street tram stop or University Square. The Google pin identifies the location of the lifts to Level 3 in the complex. On street car spaces can often be found around University Square, or the the underground car park can be accessed from Berkeley or Bouvierie Sts.

New Venue

In tonight's meetup I'll discuss how a universally accessible library for the body of human knowledge emerged from what started as defense projects to interconnect various projects so they could share computer resources and to harden digital communications against nuclear warfare.

Topics I'll cover include:

An Early Map of the Web Connectivity

Web Internections
