On Tuesday, April 29, 2003, the National Center for Supercomputing
Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
will host five of the nation's leading technologists to explore
the future of computing and networking. This panel discussion
will celebrate the 10th anniversary of NCSA's release of Mosaic,
the world's first freely available graphical Web browser. Mosaic
spurred a revolution
in communications, business, education, and
entertainment that has had a trillion-dollar impact on the global
|Back in 1993, people saw Mosaic as an exciting new tool, but no one could have predicted that its wide adoption would lead to e-commerce, online classrooms, downloadable music and films, and new worldwide communities of people with shared interests.|
This lively, two-hour conversation will cover the past, the present, and the future of computing and networking innovation. Topics will range from the impact of Mosaic and its progeny, including Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer, on society, science, and business to the panelists' long-term visions of the future of computing, networking, and technology. The panelists, all well-known experts in their fields, will identify innovations and trends, including some that are on the horizon and others that are still the dreams of big thinkers. The symposium will also give members of the community the opportunity to ask questions of these exciting thinkers and innovators.
