What is the Web?

A session at IWMW 2009 (Institutional Web Management Workshop)

Wednesday 29th July, 2009

1:30pm to 2:15pm (GMT)

The Web won't last because it isn't really anything! Is it 'stuff that can happen in a browser'? Well that covers almost anything since browser plugins and helpers sprout daily! It is just a bunch of tools for sharing information amongst a much wider set of tools (with new ones almost daily). It only takes a new cool tool to appear that doesn't use http and its all downhill from then on. Its really about INFORMATION (broadly described) and the role of IWMW is to get it flowing by going with the flow of how people interact with information and each other - sounds a bit like the finale in Aberdeen:-)
