A unique architecture and philiosophy championed by a core of public spirited technologists has kept the Web relatively resiliiant to dominance by governments or private corporations. Much of the credit goes to pioneers of open source initiatiates and the development of neutral standards.

Scalable open source technologies continue to be the web’s foundation. Key technologists will discuss how the open standards movement helped build the web, and why it’s critical to its future.

In this panel, we bring together some of them to share their thoughts on the core building blocks of a free and open web, and to discuss what’s needed to continue the Web's amazing development of the past two decades.
