20 years ago Sir Tim Berners-Lee gave birth to the World Wide Web--a revolutionary invention that ushered an exciting new era of unprecedented innovation, free expression, and commerce. Come join and raise a glass in celebration of the Web, and in honor of the man who created this world-changing technology. Ironically, Berners-Lee retained no commercial rights in his invention, allowing the technology to spread exponentially, and minting scores of millionaires and billionaires in the process. In his honor, we will be serving a specialty cocktail--the Sir Tini--along with beer and wine.
Regardless of whether you appreciate the WWW for kitten videos rather than the boundless innovation, freedom, and commerce it generates, come and raise a glass to a medium not even old enough to legally drink.
Join us immediately following the conclusion of State of the Mobile Net. We will be serving an assortment of appetizers, beer, wine, and, of course, the Sir Tini. We hope to see you there! #SOTMN
