Since his origin as interstellar dust 15 billion years ago, Bebo White's interests have included computational physics, high energy physics, networked information retrieval, and programming languages, high performance computing, grid computing, and physics event visualization.
White has been described as "a historical Web artifact" because of his seminal involvement with World Wide Web technology and the introduction of the first website in the United States at the Stanford (University) Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). More precisely White is an information specialist who spent two decades addressing the computing challenges of the SLAC physics community.
Mr. White is internationally recognized as one of the pioneers of the World Wide Web. He was introduced to Web technology during a sabbatical at Geneva's European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in 1989. His 1991 team participation in implementing SLAC's website, early advocacy for the Web, and his intense and ongoing involvement in Web technology have earned him the tag "the first U.S. Webmaster."
The 1996 MicroTimes 100 listed Bebo White in the ranks fof those making outstanding contributions to personal computing. He is a member of the International World Wide Web Conference Committee (IW3C2), and has been cited by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as having made significant contributions to the development of WWW. White became a member of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences in April 2002.
