TED Talks Archive – Tim Berners-Lee and the World Wide Web

This video is from the 2009 TED Conference talks. For those who don’t know, Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. He’s a pretty successful guy by anyone’s standards. For his next project, he is building a web for open, linked data that could do for numbers what the Web did for words, pictures, and video: unlock our data and reframe the way we use it together. Even though this talk is a year old, for those of us who are data geeks this is a pretty exciting project and I invite you to watch his talk from TED 2009 below. Pay particular attention to the last five minutes of his discussion: a lot of the concepts that he covers in this talk are already starting to be implemented through social technologies. Key quote from this talk: “Data is relationships.”
