linked everywhere, but still impressive. the web is 10 years old. the conclusion to the talk seems rather understated:

You should remember

The philosophy that academic information is for all, and it is our
duty to make information available.


  • does not disturb existing data management: simply provides access
    to the data. No extra work for infomation suppliers.

  • adds a possibility of creating hypertext links to enhance information

  • allows data to be ONLY STORED ONCE.
  • is available for most machines at CERN now.


The effort of producing good quality data outweighs the effort
of making the tools to access it.
