This lecture draws upon the speaker’s 30-year love affair with WWW technology – from his first exposure at CERN in 1989 and the first US Web site at SLAC in 1991 to his current involvement with Web Science, the Semantic Web, and the Web of Things. He posits that this experience might provide some unique insight into the future of Web technology and how it might achieve its maximum potential. The lecture is supplemented with stories, anecdotes (perhaps some gossip), pictures, and photos.

Bebo White (Distinguished Speaker, ACM) is currently a Departmental Associate (Emeritus Professor) at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, the basic energy science and high-energy physics laboratory operated by Stanford University. Prior to retirement he worked at SLAC as a Computational Physicist and Senior Computing Information Systems Analyst. He is also a Visiting Professor of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong. While his initial responsibilities at SLAC were in computational physics, in recent years Professor White's work has been dominated by his involvement with World Wide Web technology. He first became involved with WWW development while on sabbatical at CERN in 1989 and was instrumental in establishing the first non-European Web site at SLAC in 1991. Professor White has lectured and spoken internationally to academic and commercial audiences. He is the author of eight books and over one hundred journal/proceedings articles. In addition, he has been actively involved with the planning and execution of five major international conference series: The International World Wide Web Conference, The International Conference on Web Engineering, The IADIS International Conference on WWW/Internet, The International Conference on ICT in Teaching and Learning, and The Web Science Conference. His current research interests include The Internet of Things, Cybercurrencies/Bitcoin and Blockchain, The Future of User Interaction Design, and Social Media in Education.
