Informative talk that reaffirmed observations I've seen in the industry. I just want to go home and start programming something now.

Really liKed it once you got to the current stuff. Pre-php history was too long for me.

Covered relevant points in web history (to the other commenter above: let's remember responsive/adaptive/agnostic web is a recent development), and provided useful examples of where the web could go in the future.

Also, really enjoyed the integration with the arc of the Doctor.

The history was a fun look back, slightly long. Overall very intriguing, hard to argue that mobile is NOW and also very interesting view of breaking machines and computers smaller and smaller.

I felt that this was an awesome talk that gave a nice holistic view of the evolution of the web. We can't forget the past, and I think that this really highlighted the needs and future impacts that we can expect.

Very good and entertaining presentation. I think I would have liked to hear more about Eli's thoughts for the future, but all the same, very entertaining.

Started off slowly, but a strong finish. I think it would be better if he had talked less about the past and more about the future. He had some great insights about the prevalence of PHP, WordPress and JavaScript. Smart dude.

I enjoyed learning about the past. I wasn't really involved in tech or the internet, other than being a consumer, back in the nineties so it was interesting to see how we got to where we are now. This was a great keynote that got me excited for the rest of the conference.

I really enjoyed the talk looking at the history of where we began to the good ending of where we should go next

Great start to the conference. I enjoyed the stats about mobile users and code framework usage. His insights into the future were good.

Loved the Dr. Who tie-in! Nice [and sometimes scary] history of what the web was 15-20 years ago, and where we are headed. great start to the conference.
