Dr. Jeff Jaffe of W3C joins us at the TPN CES live broadcast. On March 12, 1989, Tim Berners-Lee maps out what would become the World Wide Web.
W3C is now looking at the future. What’s the next 25 years? How will it transform music, healthcare, digital publishing, and more. They have been looking at transformation of society, industry and consumer behavior. They are seeing many changes. For instance, web publishing is high quality. Add mass distribution and the game has officially changed.
“What we saw in the last 25 years which started as accessing static, boring documents,” says Jaffe, “but linking – we’ve now moved into a web of applications, video, rich accessible web, and we put a lot into web accessibility. Because the web is important to society, we have to make sure the web can be accessed by anyone independent of any disabilities that they may have.”
