Art Speak Presentation

Art Speak Presentation

The World Wide Web was born out of a 1989 proposal by Tim Berners-Lee, who was looking for a better way to collaborate across geographic distances. Robert Cailliau proposed in 1990 to use hypertext “to link and access information of various kinds as a web of nodes in which the user can browse at will”, and Berners-Lee finished the first website in December of that year.

Web 2.0 was the name that described the next evolutionary step of the “Web” in which rather than just delivering data, web sites interacted with users and each other in real time, deepening the inter-connectivity.

The following presentation addresses the relationship between “Art”, and what has come to be known as Web 3.0 in which not only are web sites connecting to one another, but the individual entities contained within the websites (images, sound-bytes, places, ideas, people, symbols, etc) are interconnected.
