OneWebDay comes once a year on 22 September.
This is Tim Berners-Lee. He invented the web. He's wishing you a happy OneWebDay. If you click on the image and then click again on the image you see when you arrive at the new URL you'll be able to view a message from Tim for OneWebDay (which comes once a year on 22 September).
Tim's clip is available in a number of languages. Click the up and down arrows in the LRHC to change the subtitles. [This can provide endless hours of fun.]
What does Tim talk about? He talks about the web. And he's particularly concerned about what he calls 'web rot': web pages that don't conform to standards. Tim wants more strict interpretation of HTML standards.
And he says he'd like to see web browsers immediately alert users to syntax errors in their web pages.
This is Tim's NeXTcube at the CERN laboratories in Switzerland. It needs a bit of a clean. The cube unit also says it's not to be turned off so maybe that's why the cleaners are waiting to come in.
Information Management: A Proposal
This is a picture from one of Tim's first papers on the web. If you click through you can read the original document.
