Web inventor comes Down Under

iiNet to host Tim Berners-Lee

Internet service provider (ISP), iiNet, is bringing the inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, to Australia for a 10-day TBL Down Under tour commencing January 30.

Internode founder, Simon Hackett, will be participating in an interview with Berners-Lee during the Canberra leg of the tour, with a video of the exclusive sit-down to be aired on iiNet’s Freezone.

“It’s not just that he invented the World Wide Web… but that he made this idea freely available, a decision which has led to its ubiquity,” Hackett said.

“It’s really exciting to explore Sir Tim’s views about how the Web has developed since those early days, the challenges that we currently face – including the vexed topic of copyright protection and freedom of information – and how he sees the Internet evolving in coming years.”

The TBL Down Under events are scheduled for Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Gold Coast, and Wellington.

The first round of registrations is sold out, although the public can still get hands on tickets through iiNet’s Facebook page.

Australians will also be able to suggest questions for Berners-Lee via the iiNet website.

British-born Berners-Lee ran the first successful communications between a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) client and server via the Internet in December 1990.
