Subject I'll be in Palo Alto on Friday

Does anyone in the Bay Area want to get together for dinner or
after dinner?  I arranged for a late flight back.


p.s. In case you are wondering, I am doing the following in the morning
     and then will be at an HTTP meeting at EIT in the afternoon.

World Wide Web Software: An Insider's View

Roy T. Fielding, Graduate Student Researcher, UCI;, 

Over the past two years, the World-Wide Web Project has experienced double-
exponential growth in the deployment and use of its technologies. Web addresses
(URLs) can now be seen in every form of advertisement--magazines, radio, 
television, and even on the banners of passing airplanes -- each directing the
reader to further information resources. All of the hype associated with this 
growth has focused on the browser technology (Mosaic, Netscape, etc.), but such
clients are actually the least significant aspect of Web technology and the 
easiest to replace.

This presentation will examine the underlying technology of the Web, including 
discussion of the WWW Project history and the philosophy behind its design, how
that design is (and is not) reflected in current Web products, and the 
architecture which will enable the next generation of Web software to become 
truly ubiquitous. Our primary focus will be on the scalability, extensibility, 
and low entry-barriers present in the Web design. In addition, we will discuss 
the dynamics of globally-distributed software engineering teams and their role 
in building the Web as a collaborative development effort.

Biography: Mr. Fielding is presently a Ph.D. student in the Department of 
Information and Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine, a 
researcher within the Irvine Research Unit in Software, and the only 
independent member of the W3 Consortium design team. Over the past three years 
he has been an active developer within the World-Wide Web Project, creating and
freely distributing software for access log analysis (wwwstat), multi-owner 
maintenance of distributed webs (MOMspider), a client library for perl 
applications (libwww-perl), and a founding member of the Apache Group (creators
of the Apache HTTPd server). Mr. Fielding is the author of the Internet 
proposed standard for relative URLs (RFC 1808), editor of the IETF and W3C 
specifications for the current generation of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol 
(HTTP/1.x), and primary author of the HTTP/1.1 protocol. During the past 
summer, he was a Visiting Scholar at the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science 
and World-Wide Web Consortium (W3C). He has been educated at Reed College and 
received the BS and MS degrees, in Information and Computer Science, from the 
University of California, Irvine.
