See Sir Tim at OS

Inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, is scheduled to give the opening keynote at the Ordnance Survey’s annual Terra future conference, set for Sept 19 at Southampton. Sir Tim will discuss the future of the World Wide Web and the growing importance of geographic information in its development.

Two points on Mr. Berners-Lee, who I was lucky enough to hear speak in Boston a few year’s back:

(1) he gets geospatial
(2) he’s very articulate and speaks so regular folks understand

If you can get there to hear him, it’ll be worth your while.

Another incentive to attend? Mike Liebhold, senior researcher at the Institute for the Future in California, who did the keynote at our Locaiton Intelligence conference this year, will give a presentation on what we need to do to build a sustainable geospatial web.
