W3C 20th Anniversary LIVE, Wed 29 Oct 2014 3:00-6:00 PM PDT (US) Time Conversion
About: http://www.w3c.org/20/

The Web is for everyone. It is our virtual “Commons”—
shared and made stronger by all. And we need you to make it better.

The Web turned 25 in 2014: In October 1994, Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to lead the Web to its full potential. To mark the anniversary this year, W3C invites the Web community to a 3-hour Symposium on the Future of the Web to discuss how the Web community can:
  • Build a more beautiful Web to enable our creative expression;
  • Extend the Web to the many devices people use to improve their lives;
  • Support trusted communications, secure and private; and
  • Empower all people to use and contribute to the Web, including support for diverse languages and accessibility.
