Keynote presentation for the eLearning Consortium of Colorado 2014 conference -- their 25th year of the conference; the firs took place a month after Tim Berners-Lee got approval for his World Wide Web project.

A Victorian era book represented the best technology of its time to organize, via a crude hypertext system, a collection of world knowledge. In the hands of a young boy growing up in the 1960s, it inspired a spirit of magic, wonder, and the vision of an open portal to the world of information. As an adult, he invented the World Wide Web. Tim Berners-Lee's original vision was of "the Web being so generally used that it became a realistic mirror of the ways in which we work and play and socialize. That was that once the state of our interactions was on line, we could then use computers to help us analyse it, make sense of what we are doing, where we individually fit in, and how we can better work together."

As an open, connected space, the web remains a near infinite place we ought to revel that same wonder. Our educational careers begin in kindergarten, knowing intrinsically the value of sharing. Somewhere between there and graduate school, we lose track of this simple concept, be it worrying about theft of intellectual property or questioning the value of what we do. The open ecology of an Enquire Within Upon Everything web can undermine this limiting attitude and rekindle that sense of wonder. It's all about creating more potential serendipity. Let's celebrate the True Stories of what happens when educators share something openly on the web.

  • 5. Suggestion of magic... a portal to the world of information
  • 6. The dream behind the Web is of a common information space in which we communicate by sharing information
  • 7. Its universality is essential: the fact that a hypertext link can point to anything, be it personal, local or global, be it draft or highly polished. The World Wide Web: A very short personal history by Tim Berners-Lee May 7, 1998 http://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/ShortHistory.html

The World Wide Web: A very short personal history by Tim Berners-Lee May 7, 1998 http://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/ShortHistory.html This proposal concerns the management of general information about accelerators at CERN. It discusses the problems of loss of information about complex evolving systems and derives a solution based on a distributed hypertext system.

Its universality is essential: the fact that a hypertext link can point to anything, be it personal, local or global, be it draft or highly polished.There was a second part of the dream, too, dependent on the Web being so generally used that it became a realistic mirror (or in fact the primary embodiment) of the ways in which we work and play and socialize.

  • 24. Since then I’ve spoken a few times about the idea that by narrating our work, we can perhaps restore some of what was lost when factories and then offices made work opaque and not easily observable. Software developers are in the vanguard of this reintegration, because our work processes as well as our work processes are fully mediated by digital networks. But it can happen in other lines of work too, and I’m sure it will.
