Talk with first U.S. Web site team

My friend, Shel Israel, and I visited the team that built the first U.S. Web Site at the Stanford Linear Accelerator. Here we have a fun discussion about those early days. Thanks to Bebo White who is one of those in this group discussion, for introducing us to the world of particle physics.

    A comment amd a question:
    This is at least as interesting as all the Web 2.0 stuff.
    The question - with intro: It is a long video. That is good because it has a lot of information, but it means that I cannot view it continuously. I need to be able to come back to where I was.

    I always feel that computer programmers lack the same kind of experimental instinct, as scientists. So it is always cool and refreshing to see scientists, who also meddle in computer programming.

  5. Tour of first US Web site team up (Stanford Linear Accelerator) « Scobleizer - Tech Geek Blogger Says:

    […] 1) A talk with the team (includes Tim Berners-Lee’s PR guy who didn’t understand what Tim was saying when he came in one day and said “I think I’ve done something interesting.”). These guys are freaking smart. 2) A meeting with Paul Kunz who built the first US Web site. He didn’t think it was that big a deal. How do we know that? Cause he assigned the task to someone else (who didn’t get the job done). 3) Bebo White gave Shel and me a tour of the visitor center and a lesson in particle physics (surprising what they found when they were building it).
