Les Compagnons du Beaujolais.

The Web Conference is in San Francisco bringing together a lot of pioneers.

Robert Cailliau and Bebo White.

It is almost tear jerking to meet many people from the good old days.

That evening I am inducted as a Compagnon du Beaujolais. https://www.compagnons-du-beaujolais.com

Hilarious evening in fancy French restaurant.

Serious stuff.

I have to swear to promote Beaujolais and then drink a lot of the stuff from a silver tassie.

Hard work
Luc and Sophie from Lyon are here for the conference.
Wendy Hall

We all have a slap up dinner and drink far too much Beaujolais.

Wonderful singing. https://youtu.be/7mMlru-gGYk

I get my own tastevin!

    Interesting to see Robert C again. Must be some 22 or more years since I last saw him and a year or two more than that when he demonstrated the early Web browser to Judith and I. He looks in good nick! Do you have to wear the official clothes when you drink Beaujolais now you’re a Compagnon? Is there a special handshake? Looks like it was a hoot!

    Congratulations, what fun, and a major honour. You will need to behave in a suitably dignified way now, though you need not refuse “encore une tasse de vin” I think. Just be sick outside.

  3. It was great fun! I have not been sick since January 1971. I wish I could but I can’t
