Title: Wired News: Interview with Tim Berner-Lee

This website contains an audio/video interview with Tim Berners- Lee. It is in both MP3 and Quicktime format. The website gives several different audio/video options to choose from, where Tim Berners-Lee is interviewed. It includes such interviews as His outlook on the World wide web as well as the importance of open standards. I think it would be very useful and efficient because Berners-Lee is the inventor/creator and as such the information is useful and viable.

This particular interview done by Christopher Lydon has three different audioparts that have different time limits.
