What will happen in your session?
From previsionary ideas like the Memex and bidirectional hyperlinks, to current browser/editor experiments and read/write web protocols, we will explore old and new visions of a web of knowledge in which the readers are also the creators and connectors of the web.
While discussing these topics, we will put the ideas into practice and start linking up and annotating related documents on the web, to collectively contribute our knowledge to the web (using a read/write browser (extension) such as WebMemex, Beaker browser, Dokieli or Hypothes.is).
What is the goal or outcome of your session?
People should leave with a broader view of the history of the web and a glimpse of its possible future, and current possibilities to add links and pages to the web from within their browsers. Also, we will have made a small contribution to the knowledge on the web, about the web.
If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.
As MozFest is approaching we require the following information from your end to better support your session in the Decentralization learning forum space. You can get back to us by replying to this issue or emailing us directly, whichever communication channel is convenient to you.
Thank you! Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
I surely intend to be there. The session topics are described in the session proposal; I hope that it gives enough information as I have not yet decided on the exact content I would like to cover, and it also depends on what the audience wants to bring in. With regards to time, I suggested to take 60 minutes, but could make it fit to any available slot.
It would be nice to know what size of room and audience you expect me to prepare for. If there is choice I would prefer a setup that makes many-to-many communication easy, rather than centralising the attention towards a single speaker.
