Home Business IT Open Source Web inventor to keynote at Linux conference

The inventor of the web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, will be the fourth keynote speaker at the 14th annual Australian national Linux conference, the organisers announced today.

The conference is scheduled to be held at the Australian National University in Canberra from January 28 to February 2 next year.

Sir Tim, who invented the web in the late 1980s, is now the director of the World Wide Web (W3) Consortium which looks after development of the medium around the world.

He is attending the Linux conference as part of a visit to Australia which is supported by a number of sponsors. He will also visit Melbourne and Sydney during his stay in the country.

Sir Tim's keynote is the only technical talk he will be delivering during his trip.

He is the best-known tech celebrity to keynote at any of the Linux conferences; next in line would be one of the inventors of TCP-IP, Vint Cerf, who was a keynote speaker in 2011.

The only person with a higher profile to attend the conference has been Linux creator Linus Torvalds but he has never been a keynote speaker.
