Web of Web Things Talk at the Joe Berg Seminar

On February 21, 2012, I gave a talk on Web technologies at the Joe Berg Seminar held at the Museum of Science and History, Jacksonville, FL.

Title of talk: "Web of Web Things"

Talk provided an overview of value of the Web, growth of the Web, and a discussion on past, present, and future Web technologies. Talk provided examples of global projects (such as Ushahidi, PatientsLikeMe, and Kiva) that use Web technologies to make a difference in the global society. The talk also provided examples of UNF student projects that are making a difference in the Jacksonville community.

Mission of Joe Berg Seminar:
“The Joe Berg Seminars of Jacksonville presents challenging evening seminars and programs for outstanding public and independent high school students led by experts in various fields of the sciences and humanities. Participation in the society promotes independent thinking and a love of learning while enlarging the students' awareness of career options and current societal issues and allowing association with many of the other best students in Jacksonville.”
