Incredible keynote. Really great history lesson and how our profession became what it is today, and thinking about what it will become.

An interesting, inspirational, and informative talk about the origins and future of the Internet and our community.

One of the better keynotes I've witnessed live. Samantha spoke eloquently and with passion. Her mix of history and personal experience had everyone's attention throughout the hour. Well done. I'll be looking for her name in upcoming presentations.

I am in awe of Samantha's ability to present talks. I've seen her do technical and now I've seen her do a keynote. In both cases, she makes me care about what she is talking about and I always leave wanting to learn more and be better. Well done.

One of the best keynote talks I've ever seen. For a web developer conference this ticket all the boxes. Interesting, informative, entertaining, inspiring and beautifully delivered with energy and passion. Thanks Sam.

I loved this keynote! I was engaged from the beginning; very well done!

Samantha is one of the few tech speakers I've seen that can pull you without fancy slides or anything. This was a great history lesson and view of what's next. Presentation was spot on, flawless. Very motivating and engaging.

Outstanding trip down memory lane. I did a lot of the BBS and early web stuff Samantha talked about and I'm a bit of a computing history junky. This was a great look at where we've come from and where we're heading. Very engaging and a lot of fun. Extremely well done.

This is the kind of talk that makes you and your personal technical accomplishments seem like mere drops in the ocean of progress that the world has made since 1969. Masterfully presented, poignant, and super inspirational.

Thoroughly enjoyable. When in the car, my grandkids do indeed expect WiFi via my smartphone as a tethered hotspot. And it's amazing to see the video content they manage to create and post from the backseat using sites only kids their age seem to know!!

Yes, theirs is indeed a different world.

Engaging and informative - really great.

I love learning about the history of computation, and this talk did not disappoint. Full of colourful stories and a vista of possibilities. You are a talented speaker and a wonderful person to know.

11/10 would hear again

I think we're lucky Samantha does code. We'd never get to see her speak otherwise. I do know an item or two about our history of computing. I've never seen "where we come from" derived from this perspective. Delightful!

Fantastic presentation, loved the history and stories. Samantha did an incredible job engaging us and keeping it lively and interesting.

Highlight of the conference. Great job and great energy on stage.

Samantha masterfully wove personal anecdotes, history lessons, and philosophical points into an outstanding presentation. Between her choice of topic and high-octane delivery, this was keynote material through and through.

There are no enough ways for me to convey how awesome this talk was.

The trip down computing history lane, where all of today has come from, and our responsibility are cleanly laid out. This was an amazing talk through-and-through.
