Virtual Interview: Hakon Wium Lie
(Page 1 of 3 )

Before we jump into the interview however, take a look at Hakon's bio as displayed at Opera.com. It's truly amazing:

"Wium Lie is a Web pioneer, having worked on the WWW project at CERN, the cradle of the Web. He first suggested the concept of Cascading Style Sheets in 1994 and he later joined W3C (the World Wide Web Consortium) to further strengthen the standards.

In 1999, he was listed among Technology Review's Top 100 innovators of the next century. He's currently a member of the W3C's Advisory Board, Technology Review's "TR 100," and World Economic Forum's "Technology Pioneers."

Wium Lie holds a master's degree in Visual Studies from MIT's Media Laboratory, as well as undergraduate degrees in Computer Science from West Georgia College and Ostfold College, Norway."

Now that we've got a bit of background on one of the most influential people in relation to shaping the web, let's see how my interview with Hakon shaped up.
