SxSW 2003

There’s a sense of celebration that sets SxSW apart from any other conference you might attend. In that spirit, David Weinberger’s keynote was perfect. The short version of “Why the Web Matters” is basically:

  • Every link an individual makes to another site is an act of selflessness
  • We are at our best when we are generous
  • The Web is all about linking
  • So, the Web is based on an architecture of generousity — it is us at our best

Update MPEG4’s are available.
