The Web 1.0 Conference is a one day event celebrating the creative, original, static (no backend) web sites, both old and new, that stand the test of time. Spend a day building websites and show them off at the end of the day!
Come build websites at the Web 1.0 Conference at MIT Media Lab!
In 2015 we ran the first Web 1.0 Conference in Portland, Oregon, and it quickly sold out. Now we're bringing it to MIT!
Do you have some domains lying around that you'd love to develop? Do you miss building static websites in a time where the web was just a little less complex? Do you want to learn about new tools such as Mozilla's A-Frame for WebVR? You'll be in great company!
The conference is sponsored by Neocities.org, a static website hosting company based in Portland, Oregon. We'll have the founder here to give talks about making the web fun again, Visicalc creator Bob Frankston and WebVR artist Stephanie Mendoza.
Call for Speakers!
If you're in the area on Dec 2nd and 3rd and would like to give a talk on the history or the future of the web, your favorite old websites or some new tools you're using for static websites, please get in touch with Amber Case (@caseorganic) firstname.lastname@example.org! We'd love to have you talk!
