The web has supported multiple media since its inception - however, only recently has it become a viable platform for building audio applications. The talk will examine the journey of audio in the web platform, the intersection of interesting technologies that make this a pivotal point for audio and the web, and will highlight the opportunities unlocked by web audio and where we go from here.
