Web is 20 years old today

On April 30, 1993, CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research), publicly revealed their new creation, the World Wide Web.

Tim Berners-Lee's team had created the web to share information among computer users all over the world.

This was the first web page.

The Web has taken us way past academics sharing information.

Look around.  Do you see many record stores?  Video tape or DVD rental stores?  Do you have to go to high school reunions to keep up with old friends?  \

The impact of the web is great.  I think there is more government transparency, although we have a ways to go.

So many businesses have been disrupted :  travel agents, newspapers, retail, music, television, film, 

You have to wonder, what will the next 20 years bring?

Programming for Google Glass

Actually, they call it creating new experiences.  There was a presentation at the recent South by Southwest on the topic.  Quite illuminating.

Fifty minutes long, but worth it if you want a feel for how Glass will work, and how content is created for it.
