Designers + Geeks: Annotating Knowledge
Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 7:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, CA
Designers + Geeks features talks from experts on design, technology, startups, and all manner of geekery. If you want to be the first to hear about new Designers + Geeks events, sign up for the newsletter.
From Vannevar Bush in 1945 to Marc Andreessen in 1993, the web's visionaries have imagined it to be read/write by design. Till now, it's been just a dream. Learn how a new W3 standard called Open Annotation promises to change that, and with it everything about how we explore, connect, share and assess human knowledge.
Dan Whaley is the founder of Hypothes.is, a new non-profit to enable the community moderated annotation of the world's knowledge. Previously he built the first world's first online travel reservation system-- which today, under SABRE, still handles over $9B in travel a year.
